 Urge to Exercise Strict Control on Binge Drinking by Maori High School Students

A study to evaluate the extent of binge drinking by Maori high school students has revealed that the government must discover other ways to prevent youth from consuming alcohol.

This is especially important as the government is pretty clear they do not want to increase the legal age for drinking.

Auckland University researchers who conducted a Youth '07 national health survey found enough evidence of binge drinking among youth.

The sad part is the survey showed that 25% of Maori youths who drink heavily procure the alcohol from an adult. This is why it is very important to supervise young drinkers.

It is also important to have enough campaigns to dissuade youth from abusing alcohol.

Alcohol is a depressant drug that acts on the central nervous system, and slows down the functions of the brain, reduces social inhibitions and helps to relax. It is the most abused drug in the world.
