alcoholism-definition-changes-include-binge-drinking-booze

Psyciatry's diagnostic manual, the DSM, is about to label almost 100% of college students 'mild alcoholics.'

LOLz, okay, it's not that bad. 40%. What we mean is that they're about to categorize binge drinkers, and other levels of alcohol misuse, with a new definition of alcoholism that blurs the lines between problem drinking and alcoholism itself.

To test this new definition, they had to take a look at how it changed the diagnosis.

The researchers studied more than 7,000 fraternal and identical twins. The twins responded to questions that assessed whether they met criteria such as loss of control over drinking, trying and failing to cut down or quit, and hazardous use (such as drunk driving) that doctors commonly use to define alcohol problems.

The results?
