Study: Women binge drink more than men

Posted: Updated:

A Harvard study reveals that college women binge drink more often than men.

Researchers followed almost 1,000 college freshman for two years and found women were more likely to exceed the recommended weekly guidelines for alcohol consumption than men.

The guidelines from the National Institute of Health suggest women drink no more than 7 alcoholic beverages a week, as opposed to 14 drinks for men.

However, women tend to develop problem drinking habits at lower levels of alcohol consumption than their male peers.
