According to a nationwide survey published recently, more Americans are drinking — and I don't mean water. The rise of folks imbibing on alcohol is across the board in terms of race and gender; meaning everyone is doing it. Most alarming though is that binge drinking is on the rise. Binge drinking is defined as consuming five or more alcoholic beverages in a day, and remember, one drink is considered the healthy limit for women and two for men.
Just a friendly healthy reminder that limiting the amount of alcohol you consume can help prevent breast cancer and other cancers, lower your risk of stroke, and prevent loss of bone density.
