New High School Danger: Extreme Binge Drinking
(NEW YORK) -- Parents not only have to worry about their high school-age kids drinking or even binge drinking alcoholic beverages. They have to be concerned their youngsters are extreme binge drinking. That's the term health officials are giving to the practice of drinking anywhere from 10 to 15 drinks or even more in one session. Extreme binge drinking is not that uncommon, according to researchers at the University of Michigan Institute for Social Research, which conducted a study of the practice.
