A new study by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported a significant increase in the number of U.S. adults who regularly binge drink. Binge drinking is defined as the consumption of five or more drinks on a single occasion for men or four or more drinks on a single occasion for women.
The most shocking revelation: one in six adults binge drink four on more times per month. The health consequences from this type of overindulgence can be significant. This type of drinking can also lead to dependency and addiction.
