Alcohol is a growing women's health issue, with recent research shedding light on the different, heightened risks women face by drinking.
- One serving of alcohol per day raises the risk of breast cancer for women by roughly 10%.
- Young females are now more likely to drink and to report getting drunk than young males.
- Among adults, alcohol-related emergency department visits and deaths have increased more for women than for men.
