Naylor, Adam H.; Gardner, Doug; Zaichkowsky, Len
Adolescence, v36 n144 p627-39 Win 2001
High school students (N=1,515) in Massachusetts were surveyed about whether participation in athletics promoted a healthier lifestyle and decreased use of recreational drugs. Participation in athletics did promote a healthier lifestyle and athletes were significantly less likely to use cocaine, psychedelic drugs, or smoke cigarettes. However, work is needed in prevention of alcohol and marijuana use. (JDM)
