beware people!!!

Underage drinking and alcoholism are tightly linked. People who start drinking before age 21 are twice as likely to become addicted to alcohol, while the risk of becoming an alcoholic is four times greater among those who begin drinking before their 15th birthday.
Underage drinking is worth nearly $23 billion a year to the alcohol industry researchers from New York's Columbia University report.
"What we see here is that there is a large conflict of interest for the alcohol industry between profitability and public health," Susan E. Foster of The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia told Reuters Health.
