Study: Kentucky High School Students Playing It Safe

Fewer Kentucky high school students are engaging is risky behavior. That good news comes from a joint survey conducted by the Youth Risk Behavior Center and the Centers For Disease Control.

The study randomly surveyed high schoolers about alcohol and drug use, injury and violence, tobacco use, nutrition, physical activity, and risky sexual behavior.

Here are some study highlights: the number of kids who drink and smoke is down. Drunk driving and incidents of violence are also down. The numbers of kids at risk for obesity are holding steady and less students admit to practicing safe sex than in past years.
