Catalyst - Teen Alcohol
Should we be rethinking underage drinking? That's the question experts around Australia are asking as new evidence mounts of the long term damage to vulnerable brains and lives.
In this must see episode of Catalyst, we take you through the latest research on alcohol's impact on the still developing adolescent brain, the alarming trends in underage alcohol consumption, and new evidence of a link between the age you starting drinking and later alcohol dependence.
The results will lead you to a confronting question – have parents, inadvertently, been making things much worse? Australia's culture of heavy drinking is often made light of, but it comes at a heavy cost.
