Research shows greater proportion of 16- to 24-year-olds shunning alcohol entirely

A large proportion of young people in England are shunning alcohol completely, a study has suggested.

Researchers said abstaining from alcohol was becoming “more mainstream” among people aged 16 to 24 after the analysis showed a rise of proportion of non-drinkers.

The research, published in the journal BMC Public Health, found more than 25% of young people classed themselves as “non-drinkers”.
