Causes
  • Anorexia Nervosa along with Bulimia are the two
    main eating disorders that trigger most
    adolescents. Those with eating disorders are
    often single-minded and very determined to loose
    weight. Their daily lives such as relationships,
    problems, stress, and mostly school is the core
    to sparking a distorted mind. The models we see
    on TV or those who we carefully observe within
    the latest fashion magazines, also play a big
    role to this disease. Dieting turns to excessive
    behaviour. The scale gradually becomes an
    essential tool. Ninety, eighty-five, eighty..

Treatments
  • Treatments for eating disorders are visiting a
    doctor who then may refer the individual to a
    specialist or to attend the Eating Disorder
    Association (N.H.S). The Eating Disorder
    Association have many units that understand and
    assists those who seek for guidance and support.

Attention?
  • There are many misconceptions to those who have
    anorexia or bulimia. People often look down upon
    them thinking that they are only seeking
    attention. To those who have eating disorders, it
    is simply inevitable because it is based on the
    person's mentality. A disease that slowly brings
    you to death.
