Transcript of Risk Taking in Teens

We speculate that this is because it effects nearly everyone throughout their life and nearly everyone has been guilty of it during some stage of their life. By looking at this graph we see that most people would prefer to lose their wifi for a month than cliff jump.

This survey concluded that many overestimate how much today’s youth are drinking. The fact that 20 percent of people aged 13-17 are drinking today is discouraging, especially considering the long term side effects.
