The study also noted that people in the 18-to-34 age range went on binges more frequently, but more than half of all binge drinks consumed annually in the US were consumed by people aged 35-years-old and above. What exactly binge drinking can do to the body? Binge drinking is defined as four or more drinks in one sitting for women, and five or more for men.

New CDC data shows that American adults actually consume up to 17.5 billion drinks a year, amounting to about seven drinks consumed at one time.

For binge consumers, 4 out of each 5 drinks were devoured by men.

The Kentucky Distillers' Association, Buzick Construction, CityScoot, Independent Stave Company, Kentucky Office of Highway Safety, Louisville Metro Councilman Brandon Coan, Louisville Metro Police Department, Lyft and Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of Kentucky partnered with Safe Ride KY for the discounts. It was published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

Ant McPartlin 'arrested on suspicion of drink-driving' after crash
However Lorraine thinks it will be business as usual for Ant and co-host Declan Donnelly come Saturday. He also announced in January that he had split from wife Lisa Armstrong after 11 years of marriage.

In accordance with CDC, the data used in the report was from the year 2015, but the study formulated was the first analysis of the information. Total annual binge drinks was calculated by multiplying the estimated total number of binge drinking episodes among binge drinkers by the average largest number of drinks consumed per episode, and was assessed by age, sex, education, race/ethnicity, household income, and state. The practice is also more common among those who are less educated and have lower incomes.

The highest sum total number was that of 841 in Arkansas; followed by MS, at a total of 831; then Kentucky; then Hawaii, at 611. "But most problems, like injury, and impaired driving crashes, and so on, come from episodic heavy or binge drinking", Brown said. More dangerously, the higher risks alcohol poisoning, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease - like heart attack and stroke - cancer and liver diseases like cirrhosis. When binge drinking becomes chronic, it can be considered an early warning sign for alcohol dependence if not controlled.

Widespread use of effective community prevention strategies, such as limiting the number of alcohol outlets in a geographic area, limiting days and hours of sale, and legal liability for outlets that illegally serve underage or intoxicated patrons, could help reduce total binge drinks and related harms.

The federal Preventive Services Task Force also recommends alcohol screening and brief intervention by health providers during routine care, the agency said.
