#6502 Binge drinking is traditionally a young man’s “sport,” but now many college-age women are doing their best to keep up. Why? And how does such a staggering level of alcohol consumption affect a woman physically?
This ABC News program explores those questions, documenting one young woman’s quest to systematically determine the impact of regular, heavy drinking – four drinks every two hours for a month, to be specific – on her physiology. The results can be described as horrific.
The program also shows how binge drinking can turn women into targets of sexual assault, although these tragedies are often not remembered by the victims.
