    The age at which a person takes a first drink may influence genes linked to alcoholism, making the youngest drinkers the most susceptible to severe problems. A team of researchers, led by scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, studied 6,257 adult twins from Australia. http://www.labslink.com/ViewResearchNews.aspx?id=689

    I think that it doesn't matter when a teenager has a glass of wine at Christmas and has the odd time where he or she drinks a bit too much, but when you see these teenagers drinking on Friday nights on the streets, causing problems can't be good.

    Basically, i think like adults, the teen needs to know when to stop.
