Researchers say binge drinking as a teenager could damage your brain for life.

According to the study, if you start drinking when you're young it could interfere with how your brain develops and cause permanent changes to your DNA.

The authors of the study claim teens who drink are at a higher risk of developing anxiety disorders and possibly struggling with alcoholism.
