A new study at the University of Queensland has found that on average young Australians are being exposed to alcohol advertisements on social media every 2 minutes and 43 seconds.

PhD candidate Brienna Rutherford from UQ’s National Centre for Youth Substance Use Research, examined the social media accounts of 125 university students aged 17 to 25, and found they had been exposed to almost 800 alcohol advertisements.

4ZZZ Journalist Harry Kuzewicz spoke to Brienna Rutherford and Associate Professor Dr. Gary Chan about the implications of these findings.
