Anorexia, bulimia, and other eating disorders will be discussed this afternoon at a hearing designed to provide more information to parents and children about the problems.
One-thousand people are expected to take part in The National Eating Disorder Association’s walk at the Philadelphia Zoo tomorrow morning.
When you look at it closely, the numbers are quite concerning. Anorexia nervosa affects more than 1 out of every hundred women with teens and young adults the most vulnerable.
Many seem to think eating disorders are problems younger people face. A new study by the International Journal of Eating Disorders, however, says it’s affecting older women as well.
