Understanding Eating Disorders

Last month I posted a short article on eating disorders. Since eating disorders affect so many people, I thought I'd share another web site that I found with some great information.

Whether it's eating too much or not enough, eating disorders can cause some very serious health issues and sometimes even lead to death. Eating disorders can affect anyone, but woman/girls make up the vast majority of cases.

The National Institute of Mental Health has a great web page filled with information on the definition of eating disorders and has sections on anorexia, bulimia and binge eating. It also tells you where to look for more information.
