NIH: Prevention programs curb effects of genetic risks

A recent study conducted at the University of Georgia and supported by the National Institutes of Health found that family-based education and prevention programs for early adolescents could help curb the effects of a genetic risk factor known to be associated with binge drinking. The results will be published in an upcoming issue of the journal Child Development, but you can read about the details of the study here.

    Alcohol education is important in lowering the drinking age to 18, thus the current drinking must be abolished. In addition, with people who have increased effects of a genetic trait for binge drinking, alcohol education to prevent binge drinking is very important. Similarily, since there’s lot of alcohol abuse at universities, an alcohol education program and a lower drinking age will be the solutions and must be implemented in whole. It’s good the results will be published.
