Teenage girls drinking more than the boys

28.3% of teenage girls and 24.5% of teenage boys are putting themselves at risk of short-term alcohol-related harm at least monthly according to a study by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. It also found 3.2% of teenage girls drink weekly, compared to only 1% of teenage boys. The study also showed a reduced usage of illicit drugs.
