Binge-Drinking on Rise

Binge-Drinking on Rise

The number of Americans who binge-drink -- meaning they consume at least five drinks at one sitting -- has increased. Because direct measurement of binge drinkers is difficult, it can be useful to examine other metrics. For example, 2.8 million students arrested for DUI, 1,700 unintentional injury deaths, and almost 700,000 student-on-student assaults are all attributable to binge drinking on college campuses.
