"People who grew up in states where it was legal to drink alcohol before age 21 are more likely to be binge drinkers later in life, according to a new study."

What about countries? Other than England, of course.

Similarly in states where the age for renting a car all by yourself is lower than 25 there are much higher rates of renting two or three cars at least twice a month.

Ah, yes, but the people who grew up in these states are in their 70s and 80s, which means they've out-lived their non-binge-drinking counterparts. Thus, binge drinking makes you live longer.

I gew up in 21+ states, but never had any trouble getting a drink @17+ to maturity. Binge drinking makes you live longer, if you don't get run over in the gutter at an early age. Ah, luck.
