Overseas health insurance customers are among those who might want to take heed of a recent study and keep a closer eye on their teenagers.
According to a recent study led by Dr Jennifer Epstein, public health researcher from Weill Cornell Medical College, teenagers who drink alcohol are more likely to spend a lot of time on their computers.
The anonymous survey looked at over 260 teenagers aged between 13 and 17.
It revealed that there was a link between those who drank alcohol and those who spent time on social networking sites and downloading or listening to music.
People who spent a lot of time on their computer for education or work purposes did not demonstrate this link.
Dr Epstein commented: "While the specific factors linking teenage drinking and computer use are not yet established, it seems likely that adolescents are experimenting with drinking and activities on the internet.
"In turn, exposure to online material such as alcohol advertising or alcohol-using peers on social networking sites could reinforce teens' drinking."
