You hear a lot that drinking is bad for teens, which seems like an obvious statement. However, what actually happens inside a teen's brain if they binge drink? A study done in 2010 found some significant effects in teens that drank 4-5 drinks at a time about 2-3 times a month. The results were different for boys and girls, but equally damaging in the amount of effect on their brains.
