Binge Drinkers on the Rise

A report published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that binge drinking is becoming widespread and aggressive among teenagers.//

The CDC defines binge drinking as "a common pattern of excessive alcohol use" and the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism defines binge drinking as a pattern of drinking that brings a person’s blood alcohol concentration to at least 0.08 percent.

Binge drinking is now commonly defined for men as having five or more drinks of alcohol in a row and for women as having four or more consecutive drinks.

Data analyzed from 15,000 US high school students showed out of the almost half of them who drank, an astounding 64 percent admitted to binge drinking.

Each year, college students spend approximately $4.2 billion annually to purchase 430 million gallons of alcoholic beverages — including more than 4 billion cans of beer, according to WebMD.

The study published in Pediatrics journal has shown links between binge drinking and other socially undesirable and risky activities like unsafe sex, multiple partner sex, drug abuse, suicidal tendencies, fights and other violent behaviors.

Binge drinking is associated with many health problems, including unintentional or intentional injuries, alcohol poisoning, children born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, high blood pressure, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases as well as liver disease, neurological damage and poor control of diabetes.
