With More Alcohol Choices Than Ever, Young Drinkers Won’t Settle For Beverages Of The Past
“How much alcohol young legal drinking age adults (LDAs) consume today isn’t so far out of lockstep with prior generations.

But, while safe, clean drinking water is prevalent everywhere, sometimes we take it for granted. This is especially true when there are drought conditions, or flooding adds bacteria and other waste into an area’s drinking water.”
