Youth clinking glasses full of alcoholYouth who drink a few times per month in Grade 9 are likely to become weekly – and even binge – drinkers in the following years, says a recent University of Waterloo study.

“Early alcohol use is associated with a long list of negative health consequences down the line,” said Mahmood Gohari, a public health postdoctoral researcher at Waterloo. “This study reinforces the idea that prevention policies need to start in those first two years of high school, or even before that, before drinking becomes habitual.”
