"This research highlights the potential role of individual differences in verbal abilities during childhood as a risk factor for the subsequent development of alcohol use during adolescence and young adulthood," said Michael Windle, professor and chair of the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University.
"This study's findings make a significant contribution to the [field] by using a discordant twin design to address issues about the association between childhood verbal ability and subsequent alcohol use in adolescence and young adulthood," said Windle.
"In interpreting the findings from this study in comparison to other studies of verbal ability and alcohol use, it is important to consider the cultural context," added Windle.

Teens Enticed by Herbal Substances That Might Not Be Safe [cached]

"They say it is not illegal and that it's an herb, so adolescents may think it is actually healthy for you," Michael Windle, PhD, of Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health, told WebMD Health News in a Sept. 9, 2008 article. "This is a clever marketing gimmick to sell it online. You remove any guilt these adolescents may have about taking a drug." Unfortunately, removing guilt doesn't also remove consequences - a fact that four Pennsylvania teenagers discovered in September 2008 when they ended up in the hospital after taking what they thought were herbal "Snurf" pills, which they had purchased online. Though the packaging listed exotic-sounding herbal ingredients such as Fevizia, Palenzia, and De la Amazon, WebMDreported that these substances don't actually exist. What the teens actually took, multiple news sources reported, was dextromethorphan (also known as DXM or "dex"), a cough suppressant that is found in many over-the-counter medications. "The message isn't out there of the potential dangers of using these substances," Windle told WebMD writer Daniel DeNoon.
