Editor's Note: American Women and Binge Drinking

EDITOR'S NOTE: A clarification to a January 9, 2013 World News report on binge drinking among women: a January 2013 study released by the CDC documented the effects of binge drinking on women in the United States. We said the CDC reported a rise in binge drinking, while the CDC's study actually addressed only current use by women and girls. It was their first study of binge drinking by women, which they characterized as "a serious, under-recognized problem among women and girls."
