In her article “Alcohol can rewire the teenage brain,” author Tara Haelle supports that teenage drinking is a growing concern and accounts for 11 percent of all alcohol consumption in the United States alone.

It’s also a proven fact that brains don’t stop developing new paths to use until your mid 20’s and alcohol can mess with your cognitive abilities as well as memory. If a lower drinking age was established these people believe that teens would be more susceptible to diseases and other issues caused by alcohol(Dean-Mooney, 2).

While this is an increase from 28%, it is not a significant increase and means that a majority of people living in the United States are without a licensed Naturopathic Physician in their area.

He surveyed citizens born between 1949 and 1972, a total of 24,088 people. In his research, he saw the correlation.
