Fuller, Dawn. "UC Study Reveals Possible Brain Damage in Young Adult Binge-Drinkers." Targeted News Service. 27 Jun 2011: n.p. SIRS Issues Researcher. Web. 18 Oct 2012. [ONE topic from research proposal] Dawn Fuller is reporting for the University of Cincinnati. The article she writes indicates that young adults who binge drink are likely to suffer brain damage. The author cites three other sources and uses statistics to support her argument. Although the source does not provide any tables or graphs, the hard evidence is very convincing because the numbers are so shockingly high. The source presents supporting information to explain and convince readers that drinking is harmful. Further, it talks about binge-drinking, which is what most college students do on weekends. Teens who drink don’t realize that weekend drinking is more dangerous than what it’s worth. Dawn Fuller writes an article about binge drinking; although the source does not provide any tables or graphs, the hard evidence is very convincing because the numbers are so shockingly high. She explains “… that binge-drinking--consuming four or more drinks in one incident…--was linked … to the section of the brain related to …paying attention, planning and making decisions, processing emotions and controlling impulses leading to irrational behavior” (Fuller par.2). Brain damage that is elective is just plain stupid. This is exactly what happens when people binge-drink. It is even worse for those whose brain is not fully developed. Sitting at a bar, ordering drinks and getting drunk, all with the aid of a fake id, is equivalent to turning off the light switch to total darkness at any given moment on purpose. Why anyone would want to function without a brain makes no sense.
