As if we needed more motivation to avoid underage drinking, Swedish researchers has linked teenage drinking to liver problems.

According to recent Swedish studies alcohol is the leading cause of liver cirrhosis and liver related deaths.

The long term study found that alcohol consumption during late adolescence was the beginning of liver problems in adulthood.

Researchers found that after 39 years of follow-up, 383 men who had consumed alcohol in adolescence had developed severe liver disease.

This is a critical issue given that alcohol-related cirrhosis is responsible for 493,300 deaths annually, according to figures from the World Health Organisation.
