Test Predicts Teen Binge Drinkers

(Undated) -- A new scientific test can determine which 14-year-olds will become binge drinkers by the time they reach 16. Scientists say they've developed a system that measures a range of risk factors and predicts which teens will become heavy drinkers with 70 percent accuracy. The research was conducted in Ireland at University College Dublin. The results are published in the journal "Nature."
