WHAT IS AMERICA'S ALCOHOL AWARENESS?
April is Alcohol Awareness Month, so let’s talk about alcohol.
Parents are still the number one reason kids give for not using alcohol and drugs.
Parenting is a hard job. You rarely get thanked and pushing back against unhealthy behaviors is hard. We know you want the best for your kids – and when you know better, you do better.
Americans are more into using alcohol – and less into understanding alcohol’s negative effects, considering that:
- Alcohol is a carcinogen and is linked to cancer. In fact, alcohol is responsible for an estimated 15 percent of US breast cancer cases (35,000/year) and deaths (6,600/year).
- Underage drinking causes 4,300 deaths and 189,000 emergency room visit per year and
- Alcohol damages our stem cells.
- People who consume more than one drink a day are more likely to die earlier and have greater health problems.
