The study also found that the alcohol consumption pattern was similar among obese and thin teenagers.

It was also seen that obese teen girls were less likely to engage in sexual activity than thin girls, while those who were sexually active were more likely to do so under the influence of substances.

Obese teenagers are already at a predisposed risk of developing chronic health problems and these risks are exacerbated by cigarette smoking and drinking alcohol.
