[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Eating disorders are among the most common problems in the United States. As a matter of fact, a mind-boggling number of 30 million Americans suffer from eating complications, with about 13 percent of them accounting for women aged over 50. To make matters worse, the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders Inc. have also found out that at least one person dies every 62 minutes as a primary result of eating disorders. Ordinarily, people suffering from this type of disorders reported that the root cause of their complications are more about the opportunity to enact a logic of personal control in a world where they can feel completely helpless rather than their choices or attitude around eating. Paradoxically, irregular eating behaviors can immediately become embedded into the person’s will and that essence of command can be extremely overpowered by self-destructive and addictive habits. Obviously, the impact of advertisements, television, newspapers, billboards, and the fashion industry are among the factors for most people, but while everyone is exposed to media, not all have suffered from eating maladies. Apart from that, common anxiety complications such as peer pressure, self-esteem issues, obsessive-compulsive disorder, family genetics, personality traits, and environmental factors are also among the determinants of an eating disorder. In addition, it is also worth mentioning that chemistry and internal triggers also have something to do with eating issues as studies of people with eating disorders have revealed considerable differences in the release of serotonin. Moreover, eating disorders also hold the highest mortality rate of any kind of mental illness, thus, making it much more dangerous.
