More than 30 million US adults partake in extreme binge drinking

May 23, 2017

More than one in 10 U.S. adults aged 18 and older — or nearly 32 million people — consumed more than twice the number of drinks that is considered binge drinking on at least one occasion, according to an analysis of a 2013 NIH survey. The results appeared in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

The researchers suggested that this higher level of drinking is associated with increased health and safety risks, and that further research explore ways to help men and women struggling with alcohol problems.
