Almost a third of college students say they’ve taken part in practices dubbed “drunkorexia,” according to a recent study, NBC News reported.
That’s the name for behaviors such as skipping meals or heavy exercising to offset calories from binge drinking, or to pump up alcohol’s buzz. The study, conducted by a research assistant at the University of Houston, found that the behaviors were just as common in men as they were in women.
The survey found that 80 percent of students engaged in at least one of the following behaviors: cutting back on food and increasing exercise; engaging in bulimic-type behaviors such as vomiting after eating or taking laxatives; boosting exercise or eating less to offset calories from drinking.
Previous research showed that 40 percent of college students drink heavily at least once a month. The researcher said a cultural shift in men being more worried about their appearance may have led to the rise in the behavior.

Call it the United Sweats of America. A heat wave spreading across the country is leaving few places to hide. Not even the cool of night.
For the first time in more than 20 years, the Climate Prediction Center map is shades of one color: orange for above normal temperatures.
The map usually varies, showing places where there is a greater chance for above or below normal temperatures or equal chances. But the outlook for August, September and October is for above normal everywhere.
Baywatch Animal Rescue
It was her ears!
Mandy Rickman visited an animal shelter in the rural Maryland along the Eastern Shore by chance today. She had just finised grocery shopping when she decided to stop by a shelter to look for a playmate for her dog at home.
She walked into the Baywatch Animal Shelter when a partial litter of puppies were let out of a kennel. Rickman focused right in on a brown dog named Maggie with big ears. The 4-month-old puppy had traveled all night from a kill shelter in Florida before landing in Baywatch's care.
The baby pigeon with a broken beak was found in April, barely 3 weeks old and about to be euthanized.
Instead the vet technician got in touch with Elizabeth Young at Palomacy, a rescue organization for pigeons and doves in San Francisco. It had somehow survived after being attacked by an animal, though its wounds were infected and its beak was split. It had been living on the ground at a gas station, fed by its parents despite its injuries.
Today the pigeon is thriving though with its crooked beak it can never be released into the wild and is available for adoption. It has taught itself to eat pigeon feed, but needs a deep dish and extra time. Its beak is as fixed as it can or needs to be, Young said.

Parrie Henderson-O'Keefe's son Peirman has a surprise waiting for him for his 16th birthday: an iguana named after a rare Pokemon character that he met at an animal shelter in Washington, D.C.
He took to the 2-year-old iguana, Charizard, as soon as he saw her at the Washington Humane Society-Washington Animal Rescue League on Thursday, scratching her neck as she shed an old layer of skin. She crawled onto his shoulder when he picked her up.
The shelter is one of more than 680 shelters participating on Saturday in Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption drive sponsored by NBC Owned Television Stations and Telemundo.
Among the other more unusual animals adopted Saturday were chickens, a pigeon, two fire-bellied toads, ferrets, rabbits, parakeets, guinea pigs and mice.
The mother of a 2-year-old Miami girl believed to have been missing since November told a judge Thursday that the child was dead.
As Miami Police continued their search for Angela, who was possibly last seen in November 2015, Marjorie Dufrene told Judge Cindy Lederman that the toddler "was no longer with us," according to audio recordings of the court hearing obtained by the Miami Herald.
When pressed on if she meant the girl had died, Dufrene told Judge Lederman "right." The 30-year-old mother said her daughter died "sometime last year," the Herald reported.

Is the pet you picked up from the shelter having trouble adjusting at home?
Don't worry, you're not alone.
Take Tucker, for example. He had some behavioral issues after he was adopted from the East Bay SCPA in Oakland last year and his family didn't know how to handle them. They brought him back, just in time for Clear the Shelters in 2015, according to shelter spokeswoman Grace Reddy. Tucker ended up finding his forever home with a volunteer during the event.
Plenty of shelter pets don't take to their new surroundings for one reason or another. Ten percent of all the animals brought to the East Bay SPCA are returns, Reddy said.
"We don't mind that," she said. "If it's not a match, for whatever reason, we don't ask questions."
It turns out, there are many reasons why it might not work out with your shelter pet, and shelters are always happy to take animals back.
