Is Binge Drinking More Dangerous for Girls?

Read Transcript

Are girls who've binge drinking in college more likely to be the victims of sexual assault? The answer is yes. A recent study filed over 400 girls as they graduated from highschool and went to collage. Some were already binge drinking and others started binge drinking in collage.

Of those who drink 46 drinks at one sitting 25% admitted being sexually victimised. Of those who drink 10 drinks at one sitting, over 59% were victims of sexual assault. Again what were the conclusions of that study? We need a lot more education about alcohol in college students and high school students.

And girls need to be aware that they became more vulnerable when they're drinking. Good information there.
