Alcohol Poisoning in the U.S.: Centers for Disease Control
New research suggests that alcohol poisoning kills about 6 people a day in the U-S. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that adds up to more than 2200 deaths annually. The numbers come from death certificate data from 2010 to 2012. Alcohol poisoning occurs when someone drinks a toxic amount of booze. The C-D-C says the research shows more should be done to stop binge drinking.
