Eating disorders are serious, potentially life-threatening conditions that affect a person's emotional and physical health. They are not a fad, phase or lifestyle choice. People struggling with an eating disorder need to seek professional help. In the United States, 20 million women and 10 million men suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some time in their life...(The National Eating Disorders Association)
