The findings that women are drinking more and more came as a surprise but then again, it wasn’t surprising.
The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism conducted two separate research projects 11 years apart, among more than 4,000 people, men and women. By the time the second project began, “High-risk drinking” amongst participants had jumped 30% and many of them were women. The research was published in The Journal of the American Medical Association Psychiatry ( JAMA) and shared on Time.com by reporter Alexandra Sifferlin.
What do researchers believe is the reason women seem to be drinking more and just what are High-risk drinkers?
