CINCINNATI - The group most likely to binge drink are women. This is according to new numbers released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The numbers show that 14 million women in the U.S. binge drink about three times a month. That's one in eight women who say they consume six drinks on each occasion.
Experts say that binge drinking does more damage to women's bodies than men's. There's an increased risk for breast cancer, hypertension, cardiovascular disease and dementia.
According to the CDC's Vital Signs report, 1 in 5 high school girls binge drinks. The report also states that among all women, the prevalence of binge drinking increases with household income.
Doctors say that you may have a problem if you're drinking seven or more drinks in a week.
