(CNN) - When it comes to college students, women are more likely to binge drink than men, according to a recent study.

Researchers looked at university students in Spain for the study.

They found 56 percent of female students were considered binge drinkers, compared to 41 pecent of males.

The report found that although men drank more in general, the women got drunk faster.

Researchers say that's because the women tended to have a more sedentary lifestyle and consumed alcohol more quickly.

The study appears in the Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.
