College-age drinkers average nine drinks when they get drunk, government health officials said Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2012. That surprising statistic is part of a new report highlighting the dangers of binge drinking, which usually means four to five drinks at a time. Overall, about 1 in 6 U.S. adults surveyed said they had binged on alcohol at least once in the previous month, though it was more than 1 in 4 for those ages 18 to 34. And that’s likely an underestimate. (AP Photo/Toby Talbot)
