According to CDC, binge drinking is the cause of more than half the 88,000 deaths due to alcohol in the US per annum.

According to the study by researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the state ranked third, at 652, in the total number of alcoholic drinks consumed per year at the time of heavy drinking episodes by people who reported being binge drinkers. Binge drinking was defined as consuming four or more drinks per occasion for women, and five or more drinks per occasion for men.

The study examined self-reported data from the 2015 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System.

Men were more likely to binge-drink compared to women. Men accounted for nearly three-quarters of the total binge-drinking episodes in 2015 and consumed 80 percent of the 17.5 billion total binge drinks.

Those with household incomes under $25,000 and lower educational levels drank more than more affluent and better-educated adults, the study, which was published in American Journal of Preventive Medicine, found.

The highest sum total number was that of 841 in Arkansas; followed by MS, at a total of 831; then Kentucky; then Hawaii, at 611.

The biggest bingers were non-Hispanic whites (19.2%) and American Indians/Alaska Natives (17.9%).

About 4 in 5 total binge drinks were consumed by men. The questions they asked included information of how often the respondents drank in the past month, and how much they consumed.

In accordance with a new study, the rate of binge-drinking of Kentucky has been one of the highest in the country. It includes injuries, violence, suicide, alcohol poisoning, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, cancer, liver disease and severe alcohol dependency.

Binge drinkers consumed the most alcohol in Arkansas (an average of 841 drinks per binge drinker per year) and the least in Washington, D.C. (317). This is a phone-based survey that interviews adults about their risky behaviors, including their drinking habits.

He added, "The findings also show the importance of taking a comprehensive approach to prevent binge drinking, focusing on reducing both the number of times people binge drink and the amount they drink when they binge". Increasing alcohol taxes and regulating the number of places alcohol is for sale in an area, even legal liability for serving an underage or intoxicated person, might be able to help combat this public health issue.
