[tps_title]Myth 15: The younger generation is drinking more[/tps_title]
This new knowledge should be perfect for teenagers. Here’s an interesting fact: 12-17 year olds who drank dropped to as low as 30 percent between 1979 and 1998. Over the years, the rate hasn’t significantly risen. Blame this myth on the news. They constantly romanticize incidents that involved alcohol-infused car accidents. They obsess about the story until we’re all led to believe that this is a worldwide problem. This is actually all about repeating something so often that people will believe it. So the next time mom and dad say no when you ask them if you can go out, tell them to Google this fact. This is a great way to shut them up and finally see the light.
