Levels of abstention have also increased, from 9% in 2005 to 17% in 2015.

The study also said non-drinking appears to have increased across "almost all sub-groups", including healthy groups (non-smokers, high physical activity and good mental health), those in employment or full-time education, and both northern and southern regions in England.

It's an idea that would have horrified previous generations - young people in Britain are not only drinking less, they're actually not starting drinking at all.

Cracking fewer cold ones with the boys " These trends are to be welcomed from a public-health standpoint", says the study's corresponding author, Dr. Linda Ng Fat.

"The increase in young people who choose not to drink alcohol suggests that this behaviour may be becoming more acceptable, whereas risky behaviours such as binge drinking may be becoming less normalised".

Analysis of figures found that the proportion of 16 to 24-year-olds who don't drink alcohol increased from 18 per cent in 2005 to 29 per cent in 2015.

The UCL team examined data on 9,699 people aged 16 to 24 collected as part of the Health Survey for England 2005-2015, an annual, nationally representative survey looking at changes in the health and lifestyles of people across England.

Treasury Issues New Rules For Tougher Foreign Transaction Reviews
The interim regulations would likely lead to more filings with the committee, said Sylwia Lis, of the law firm Baker McKenzie. "It has a significant impact", she said.

Recent cultural developments among young people that place abstinence at their core, including Club Soda-the mindful drinking movement and morning raves without the alcohol, support these claims.

The research evidence on alcohol is also growing; in recent years, we have learnt more about the link between alcohol and cancer, and the possibility that any benefit of moderate consumption is cancelled out when considering these harms or are non-existent.

Half had not drunk in the past week, up from 35 per cent in 2005. Binge drinking too declined from 27 percent to 18 percent over these 10 years.

But the increased rates in non-drinking were not observed among smokers, ethnic minorities and those with poor mental health, according to the study, which analysed data on nearly 10,000 young people.

In the past, non-drinkers were relatively rare and treated with suspicion, but now the practice is now found across various segments of society and becoming "more mainstream", the journal said.

Just one in 10 English teenagers drank alcohol weekly in 2014, down from around half in 2002, the World Health Organization said.
