Wednesday, January 28, 2015 – Alcohol Poisoning

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released a report on alcohol poisoning in communities across the United States. Higher rates of alcohol poisoning were found in Alaska, New Mexico and Arizona. Who do you think is at risk of getting alcohol poisoning? Your first thought may be teens, but the CDC found that the group most likely to die of alcohol poisoning is middle-aged men. Is alcohol poisoning a concern in your community?
