Scientists Say Sports Stars Are No Role Models

Donnerstag 29. April 2010 von htm

The loutish and drunken behaviour of some of our sporting heroes – routinely reported in the media – has little or no effect on the drinking habits of young people, new research has found.
Researchers at the Universities of Manchester, UK, and Western Sydney, Australia, say their findings – published in Drug and Alcohol Review – rubbish the idea that sports stars act as role models for those who follow sport. (Source: Medical News Today, 4/22/10)
Reports of heavy drinking by sports stars appear to have little influence on young people’s own drinking behavior, but use of athletes in alcohol advertising carries considerably more weight, results of a study in Australia suggest. (Source: Joint Together, 4/26/10)
