The CDC just released a new report that 12.5% of women over the age of 18 engage in binge drinking!
They did a telephone survey of 278,243 women and found that 24.2% of girls between the ages of 18-34 binge drank!
What's also interesting is that those who didn't graduate high school had the lowest binge drinking rates.
Binge drinking also increased as household income increased.
We guess more cash meant more free time and more drinking money!
The report found that almost 14 MILLION women binge drink about three times a month!
That is apparently the reason behind about half of the 23,000 alcohol-related deaths every year!
So ladies, maybe next time you're thinking about going out and partying hard, go see a movie or read a book instead!
Do it for your health!
