According to a new study, on any given day in the United States, 18 percent of men and 11 percent of women drink more alcohol than federal guidelines recommend.

Beyond that, 8 percent of men and 3 percent of women are full-fledged "heavy drinkers."

In case you were wondering, the government advises a limit of two drinks a day for men and one for women.

Leave it to us Americans to overachieve and take things beyond healthy limits – even with our booze.
