Grieving Out Loud with Angela Kennecke

Alcohol and women: A dangerous combination

Women are drinking more than ever before, as much as men for the first time in history. Dr. Jessica Mellinger says today’s stressors make women an easy target by the alcohol industry. Dr. Mellinger is a liver doctor at the University of Michigan who sees more young women with liver disease, and she says a woman who drinks like a man gets sicker, faster. She hopes educating women about what moderate drinking really means, will turn this dangerous trend around.
