In this episode we answered your questions about last week’s episode on the Epidemic of Obesity & Escalation of Eating Disorders (you can also review the show notes for more information).
The obesity epidemic has negatively impacted the entire U.S. health care system and reversed a 20-year trend of longer life expectancy for certain segments of the population, primarily today’s children.
If the present rate of occurrence continues, the entire population will be obese by the year 2030. Likewise, eating disorders (ED’s) such as Anorexia, are growing in numbers and reaching new segments of the population, including younger children, middle-aged women and men. These are groups that have been relatively unaffected by ED’s in the past.
