What Are Eating Disorders?

Eating disorders are serious and sometimes fatal illnesses that cause severe disturbances in an individual’s eating behaviors, impacting more than 30 million people in the United States alone. These all too often misunderstood disorders do not discriminate based on age, gender, race, or sexuality. Anyone can be impacted by an eating disorder, yet only 10% of those affected will seek professional treatment. Every 52 minutes, someone in the US dies as a direct result of their eating disorder.
