In a time when media icons with perfect body types and faces are featured prominently for style-hungry consumers, eating disorders have become ever prevalent in American society, with readers and watchers striving to mimic their favorite celebrity. As a result, over 5 million people in the United States, most of which are adolescent girls and young women, have developed eating disorders. Although the growing problem may seem like a physical one, the psychological backing for this disease becomes all too real in this new volume.

Eating Disorders takes a scientific approach to these diseases, exploring such eating disorders as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. It also discusses the causes and treatments of eating disorders for students in middle school, junior high, and high school. All material included in this volume is based on research studies that have already been done.
