Being Born After WW2 Increases Risk Of Binge Drinking And Alcoholism

A new study finds that people born after World War II are more likely and increase risk of binge drinking and develop alcohol use disorders (AUDs). The study also learned that the gender gap in alcohol problems is narrowing in many countries around the world.

“The literature on alcohol consumption indicates that young birth cohorts, especially women, are increasingly at risk for the development of AUDs,” said Katherine M. Keyes, a post-doctoral fellow in epidemiology at Columbia University and corresponding author for the study. “Given that alcoholism among women is increasing, there is a need for specific public health prevention and intervention efforts.”
