TITLE: The Level of Alcohol Use among Students of My School. TERITORY:
The successful completion of this study would not have been possible without the assistance and cooperation of a number of people. Consequently, I would like to thank GOD for giving me the strength to complete this study. I would like to thank the students of the St. Catherine High School for their massive support and valuable time spent on answering the questionnaire given. Members of my family have been a constant source of encouragement and assistance. I thank my parents for supporting me in this study. My friends were a great source of help in issuing questionnaires and collecting data. Finally, special thanks go to my aunt and teacher Mr.Williams who guided me every step of the way through this exercise.
Alcohol is created when grains, fruits, or vegetables are fermented. Fermentation is a process that uses yeast or bacteria to change the sugars in the food into alcohol. Fermentation is used to produce many necessary items — everything from cheese to medications. Alcohol has different forms and can be used as a cleaner, an antiseptic, or a sedative. So if alcohol is a natural product, why do teens need to be concerned about drinking it? When people drink alcohol, it's absorbed into their bloodstream. From there, it affects the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord), which controls virtually all body functions. Because experts now know that the human brain is still developing during our teens, scientists are researching the effects drinking alcohol can have on the teen brain.
