Movies Could Influence Drinking Behavior

Posted: Updated:

The movies your children watch could influence when they start drinking.

A study in the British Medical Journal finds that teens who watch movies filled with alcohol use are twice as likely to start drinking.

They are also twice as likely to binge drink.

Researchers say Hollywood should consider adding the same restrictions for alcohol use in movies as it does for smoking.
