Research Watch November 2000

Diana Zuckerman
November 1, 2000

This Research Watch focuses on research with important implications for the health and safety of youth, including accidents from sports and automobiles, the growing evidence of the dangers of methamphetamine, and surprising data on how soft drinks may be associated with broken bones.

The studies show how many health and safety issues have life-saving implications for youth workers who don't think of themselves as focusing on health.
