Drinking In America – Is It a Problem?

Time for a toast to drinking? Do we drink too much in the U.S.?

The results of a recent study suggests that almost 20% of men, and more than 10% of women drink more than they should according to government guidelines. And when it comes to “heavy drinking”, men more than double the women in this category at 8% to 3% for the ladies.

So how much should one drink in a day? The USDA says that it should be no more than one drink for women and no more than two for men.

As drinking problems go, one of them is binge drinking, and it is not an isolated problem. The report shows that more than 14 million women do it at least three times a month. Age differences in the study showed that younger men and older women were more likely to be heavy drinkers.

Obviously there is a problem for a considerable segment of our society.
