This probably explains why people who begin drinking at an early age tend to have greater risks of becoming alcoholics. A national survey of 43,093 adults have revealed that 47 percent of those who begin drinking alcohol before the age of 14 become alcohol dependent at some time in their lives, compared with 9 percent of those who wait at least until age 21. The results of this survey are published in Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine.

Federally financed laboratory experiments on the brains of adolescent rats subjected to binge doses of alcohol have shown significant cellular damage to the forebrain and the hippocampus.

And although it is unclear how directly these findings can be applied to humans, there is some evidence to suggest that young alcoholics may suffer analogous deficits.
