Bower, Beverly L.; Martin, Malissa
Journal of American College Health, v48 n3 p129-33 Nov 1999
Investigated alcohol and drug use by African-American female college basketball players. Surveys indicated that three-quarters of the women consumed alcohol. Nearly half had engaged in binge drinking. Very few reported using weight-loss or tobacco products. There were no reports of amphetamine or anabolic steroid use. Respondents appeared aware of short-term negative effects of alcohol and tobacco. (SM)
