Both a physical and mental disease, eating disorders affect every age, gender, race, and social class; and infiltrate the health of the mind, the body, and the soul. In the past two decades, America has seen the unprecedented growth of eating disorders in children and adults alike, as societal pressures to be thin continue to proliferate.
In order to join the fight against eating disorders, we must:

- Learn about the causes and risks of eating disorders and how to combat them
- Know how to recognize and deal with friends or family members who may be struggling
