College Women Binge Drinking More Than Men

By 01.03.13

Via Consumer Affairs:

But a new study from researchers at the University of Vigo, in Spain, found that drinking might be more unhealthy and dangerous for female students. The study concluded female students get drunk faster than males and live a more sedentary life. The results also show that 56.1% of female students are considered binge drinkers as opposed to 41.3% percent of males.

“The amount drunk per unit of time is higher among women,” said José Cancela Carral, co-author of the study published by the Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. “In other words, even though male students drink more often, females do so more intensively in shorter periods of time, which is known as binge drinking.”

Shocker, right? It's not just in Spain, too. A U.S.-focused longitudinal study discovered that binge drinking among women has steadily increased over the last few decades.
