    According to brand new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study, binge drinking costs all Americans $2 per drink. The cost of the actual drink does not even factor into that number. Reduced productivity, property and medical damages and the cost of imprisonment are just some of the factors. Binge drinking costs each of us $2 per drink. Binge drinking is associated with a profound social harm, economic costs as well as increased disease burden. Binge drinking is more common in males, during adolescence and young adulthood. Most binge drinkers are not familiar with the risks associated with binge drinking. Heavy regular binge drinking is associated with adverse effects on neurologic, cardiac, gastrointestinal, hematologic, immune, musculoskeletal organ systems as well as increasing the risk of alcohol induced psychiatric disorders.
