According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) WOMEN are at higher risk for alcohol related problems. This is because women have less water in their bodies than men causing the alcohol to be more concentrated.
Check out this brochure from NIAAA about women and drinking for additional information.
