Why do people drink if they know there not old enough? 11% 8th graders reported drinking during the past 30 days. Also 28% 10th graders reported drinking for the last 30 days. I chose this topic because it was a instresting topic. Also i think it will be instresting to learn about underage drinking.
Did you know that 35% drank alcohol, 21% participated in binge drinking. Also 10% drove after drinking, and 22% rode with a intoxicated driver. 38.2% received it from an unrelated peer on over the age 21. 21.40% received from parent gaurdian, family member. 88,000 deaths are annually attributed to excessive alcohol use.
A quote from Lucille Roybal said " our nation must no longer be complacent about underage drinking and its alarming consequences. We must bring this nation public health crisis out of the shadow and into the bright light of a national priority. My opinion about my topic is I think it is a good topic to research about because you learn about the consequences and the effects if you drink alcohol.
What i learned from the video is that underage drinking can do a lot of consequences. This video is important to my topic because it tells you how many bad things can happen if you drink underage.
