It’s National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, so for the rest of this week I plan to highlight various aspects of this important health issue. It’s an issue that often goes unseen and unnoticed, in more ways than one. In the public sphere, it is often overshadowed by the attention paid to the “obesity epidemic,” which is unfortunate, because eating disorders and obesity have more in common than one might think. But that’s a topic for another day.
Today, I have this fantastic infographic from The Moore Center Clinic and Eating Recovery Center. I think it neatly highlights the scope of the problem.
