A new study from six European countries suggests that teens who see more boozy scenes in movies are more likely to binge drink.

Although the study doesn’t prove that watching drinking on screen directly leads to alcohol consumption in real life, the authors believe that media influence does come into play, suggesting that teens who watch drinking scenes in movies may be more likely to imitate movie stars or view binge drinking as socially acceptable.

Just because it doesn’t prove it will turn into it does prove it because I said so. Wondering how they were going to stop adults from drinking, by saying it is "for the children" naturally.
