Drinkers ar Risk

Downing tequila shots isn’t the 20-somethings forte. It’s the 40 plus women who toss back six units of alcohol on one bout of binge drinking, unlike men who reach their alcohol peak in their 20s. An alarming 20% of all women also indulged in a drinking bout which put them at risk of injury. Research at Cardiff University UK, also found that the stereotypical binge drinking groups- students, younger drinkers and the unemployment- are not the most “at risk” for heavy drinking.
