one point from 2015 to 2017. Approximately 10.6% of all total participants
were then found to have "binge drank" in the
last month leading up to the survey. Consuming five alcoholic beverages or more at
once is considered to be "binging" for men,
while for women it is four or more. Lead study author Dr. Benjamin Han, via
