Binge Drinkers Report Sub-Optimal Health Status More Often Than Non-Binge Drinkers
Recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that excessive drinking is responsible for approximately 79,000 deaths annually in the United States. Binge drinking accounts for more than half of those deaths. A new study has looked at the frequency of binge drinking in relation to drinkers‘ own perceptions of their overall health status. Findings indicate that binge drinkers have a 13 to 23 percent greater likelihood of self-reporting sub-optimal health status. (Source: Medical News Today, 6/2/10)
