Connection Between Weight And Drug Use In High School Students

A study of high students in Italy discovered that those students who were either overweight or underweight consumed 20 percent to 40 percent more illegal drugs, compared to high school students who were of normal weight.

The researchers found that abnormal weight and illegal drugs are not directly connected, but rather most likely due to prevalent underlying social factors and dissatisfaction.
