Title

College vs. Junior High School Students' Knowledge of Alcohol as a Teratogen

Abstract

This study assessed knowledge possessed by male and female junior high school and college students (N = 422) about the teratogenic effects of alcohol. Although most students were aware that alcohol is a teratogenic substance, they demonstrated little knowledge of the nature and timing of possible specific negative effects.
