• Teen alcohol use kills about 6,000 people a year, more than all illegal drugs combined
• Compared with non-drinking classmates, teens that drink alcohol are more likely to:
o Die in a car crash
o Get pregnant
o Flunk out of school
o Be sexually assaulted
o Become an alcoholic later in life
o Take their own lives through suicide
• Three out of every four kids say their parents are the leading influence on their decisions about drinking
