(WHAS11) -- When it comes to binge drinking, a lot of Indiana adults are taking part, according to a new study.
That study from Ball State University found that more than one-third of adults in Indiana who drink regularly indulge in binge drinking.
Researchers found that in 2011, about half of adults classified themselves as regular drinkers and nearly 35 percent said they binge drink.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention defines binge drinking as men consuming five or more drinks or women consuming four or more in a short period of time.
