The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that excessive alcohol use causes one in ten deaths in adults ages 20- to 64-years-old. At 88,000 deaths per year between the years of 2006 and 2010, it is one of the leading causes of preventable deaths in that age group. 

Additionally, the CDC notes that, although drinking below the age of 21 is illegal, people between the ages of 12 and 20 years of age consume 11% of all alcohol ingested in the United States.  Excessive drinking in the underage population accounts for 4,300 deaths annually.

View only with Certified ‘eclipse glasses’. Make sure you view the eclipse with ISO-certified filters. Polarized and other sun glasses are not dark enough to protect your eye from damage, nor will smoked glass, neutral density filters, and other dark tinted materials.  Don’t view it through unfiltered cameras, telescopes, binocular or other optical devices, even with eclipse glasses on, as the concentrated solar rays will damage the glasses and enter the eye causing severe damage.
