USA: Later Drinking Ages Mean Less Alcohol Use

Montag 21. September 2009 von htm

Researchers are not certain how to explain the difference, but it is possible that a higher drinking age could cut back on the intensity of alcohol use before the age of 21, said lead study author Karen Norberg, M.D., a research instructor in psychiatry at Washington University in St. Louis.
