London: Many teenage girls are skipping meals to consume more alcohol, scientists have warned.

Researchers have found that the phenomenon is effecting thousands of young women, the Daily Mail reported.

A team from the University of Missouri found that 16 percent of students reported that they were reducing their calorie intake during the day to save the money for drinking.

Motivations included preventing weight gain, getting intoxicated faster and saving money that would be spent on food to buy alcohol.
