'Binge-Drinking Has Doubled Among American Women Without Children In Just 12 Years'

Wine auntism is officially an epidemic.

From The Daily Mail, "Binge-drinking has DOUBLED among American women without children in just 12 years, study reveals":
Binge drinking among women without children has doubled in just over a decade, according to new research.

More than four in ten (42 percent) childless 30- to 44-year-olds were having five or more drinks on any given occasion last year - compared to a fifth (21 percent) in 2006.

The finding, based on almost 240,000 Americans, mirrors one identified among mothers, too, but the rise of bingeing was steepest among women who didn't have little ones.

'Although heavy drinking has either decreased or stabilized for most groups, binge drinking is still common and is becoming even more prevalent,' lead author Sarah McKetta, an epidemiologist at Columbia University said.

'It's still unknown why women are increasing drinking relative to men, but we encourage physicians to screen all adults - not just select groups of men and women - for alcohol use disorders and referring them to appropriate treatment.'
Other recent studies have shown skyrocketing use of anti-depressants among older white women and surging drug/alcohol/suicide related deaths of despair.

Marriage rates have been steadily falling over the past century and the same goes for divorce rates (which just recently peaked).

Birth rates in the US have hit a 30 year low as the female labor force participation rate has climbed to nearly 60 percent.

The Washington Post reported in December 2016 that white women are also now drinking themselves to death at record rates.

"Thirty-one percent of the women with a college degree reported drinking multiple days a week, compared with 21 percent of women with some college and 14 percent of women with a high-school education or less," the Washington Post reported.

Around one in four women over the age of 20 are on psychiatric drugs.

In May, the Guardian had so-called "happiness expert" Paul Dolan tell their readers that a study showed women are happier without children or a spouse.

It turned out that was false as Dolan completely misread the data.

Another study reported on by the New York Times in May found religious women are the happiest wives.

"It turns out that the happiest of all wives in America are religious conservatives, followed by their religious progressive counterparts," the Times reported. "Fully 73 percent of wives who hold conservative gender values and attend religious services regularly with their husbands have high-quality marriages."

In October, the Guardian resigned themselves to telling their female readers there's "joy" in "living (and dying) alone" because at least you'll be sticking it to the "patriarchy."
