Prom season
If you're planning to go to prom, you've probably started to think about your date, and what you'll wear. Now's the time to think about what you want to do after the dance. Many people assume that proms include alcohol and sex. Spring celebrations can have lifelong implications. Make sure you and your date, and the people you party with, support each other's plans. Check throughout TeenLinks to get the information you need to make the decisions that are right for you.

Want some BVO in that?
Fifteen year old Mississippi teen Erin Kavanagh collected 200,000 online signatures from people concerned about BVO (brominated vegetable oil) added to Gatorade. Some research indicates BVO increases risk of nuerological disorders and altered thyroid hormones; it's banned in the European Union. Do your favorite drinks still contain BVO? Want to sign a petition, get more people involved, or start a petition? See change.org.
