Posted by on March 2nd, 2018 Posted in: Chronic Disease, Mental Health


In the United States, an estimated 30 million people may have an eating disorder in their lifetime. The March U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) blog post focuses on eating disorder myths such as Only women and girls can get an eating disorder, You can tell someone is suffering with an eating disorder by the way they look, and Eating disorders are a choice. The blog post by Monique Fontenot, HHS Public Affairs describes the other myths and points to NIH’s resources on eating disorders. To visit the site, go to https://news.nnlm.gov/bhic/a2v7.
