Fact -v- Fiction Shedding Light on Eating Disorders

Shedding Light on Eating Disorder Myths
Most high-interest topics in the news have a set of myths that continue to confuse the public.
Eating disorders are not immune to this trend, especially since many famous faces often are found to be anorexic or bulimic.

Myths surrounding eating disorders are numerous, but the facts quickly dispel them.

A typical myth is that females attending college are a very low risk group for eating disorders, because their education protects them from falling victim. An estimated 5 to 20% of college women are inflicted with an eating disorder.

This makes them a very high risk group. This is due to the high-pressure situations found in college.

Education does not protect graduates either. Many women affected are of high socioeconomic class.

The ability to handle successful careers, beautiful physical appearance, or high education has been shown not to protect against an eating disorder.

Another common myth is that only females can fall victim to eating disorders.

However, males are also very deeply affected by eating disorders. Rates for males are lower than females, but males are not immune.

These rates of eating disorders are harder to measure because men are less likely to admit that they might have a problem then females are.
