According to a new survey, one in five high school girls say they've suffered physical or sexual abuse.

And one out of six girls reports an eating disorder---


Those are the latestest findings from a nationwide survey of about seven-thousand teenagers by the Commonwealth Fund in Washington.
The survey also found many girls are putting their health at risk by smoking, drinking and doing drugs.
It used to be that more boys than girls engaged in these risky behavours.
But, this survey finds the girls are catching up.
And girls who have been abused were more than twice as likely to smoke, drink or use drugs.
Researchers say the behaviour is a form of self-medication, used by girls to reduce stress.
