Anorexia

Anorexia Nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by self-induced starvation and excessive weight loss. According to Dr. Thomas Insel, Director of National Institute of Mental Health, "Research tells us that Anorexia is a brain disease with severe metabolic effects on the entire body." While Anorexia is the 3rd most common chronic illness among adolescents, eating disorders do not discriminate between age, gender, race or class — no one is immune.
