Almost 30% of young people in England do not drink, study finds

"Factors influencing the shift away from drinking should be capitalised on going forward to ensure that healthier drinking behaviours in young people continue to be encouraged".

The UCL team examined data on 9,699 people aged 16 to 24 collected as part of their annual study looking at changes in the health and lifestyles of people across England.

She added: 'These trends are to be welcomed from a public-health standpoint.

The results mean 16 to 24-year-olds are the most sober in recent history, consuming considerably less alcohol than their parents.

Whether you choose to drink or not drink alcohol, it's a personal preference.

The data revealed that 29% of 16-24-year-olds in the United Kingdom don't drink alcohol - a significant increase from 18% back in 2005.

The lion's share of this increase is represented by those who have never consumed alcohol: their ranks swelled from 9% of their age cohort in 2005 to 17% in 2015.

The research by University College London said abstaining from alcohol was becoming more mainstream among young people, with an increase in the proportion of 16 to 24 years olds in England shunning alcohol completely.

Dr Linda Ng Fat, lead author of the study, said: "Increases in non-drinking among young people were found across a broad range of groups, including those living in northern or southern regions of England, among the white population, those in full-time education, in employment and across all social classes and healthier groups".

But the study of 10,000 young people also found that increased rates of non-drinking were not seen among cigarette smokers, ethnic minorities and people with poor mental health.
