On-Screen Alcohol Use Leads to More Drinking

Mar 4, 2009  •  Post A Comment

A new study by Radboud University in the Netherlands finds that people are more likely to drink more alcohol if they’ve recently seen drinking in TV, films or commercials, BBC News reports. The study monitored 80 people between the ages of 18 and 29 and found that those who had seen many alcohol references during the span of a film with commercials drank about twice as much as those who saw less drinking, the site says. A researcher for the study notes more research needs to be done to analyze the long-term effect of alcohol exposure, the BBC says.
