     Special Issue on Eating Disorders

     

    More and more people all around the world are afflicted with eating disorders every year, and most of them are adolescent and young women. Rarely talked about, an eating disorder can affect up to 5 percent of the population of teenage girls. There are three main types of eating disorders: Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder. The disorders are caused by a complex interaction of social, biological and psychological factors which bring about the harmful behaviors. The important thing is to stop as soon as people recognize these behaviors in themselves or to get help to begin the road to recovery. Treatment of eating disorders nearly always includes cognitive-behavioral or group psychotherapy. Medications may also be appropriate and have been found effective in the treatment of these disorders, when combined with psychotherapy.
