Binge Drinking: Nationwide Problems, Local Solutions

This January 2012 edition of the CDC Vital Signs series addresses Binge Drinking throughout the US. New estimates show that binge drinking is a bigger problem than previously thought; binge drinking is a dangerous and costly public health problem. More than 38 million US adults binge drink. This behavior greatly increases the chances of getting hurt or hurting others due to car crashes, violence, and suicide. (CDC 2012)
