Kate Middleton's Appearance In Public Plants A Seed Of Doubt Concerning Whether The Duchess Might Have An Eating Disorder
Around 70 million people worldwide suffer from eating disorders. Many people affected by anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa do not come forward for diagnosis because of their fears, denial or embarrassment.
Approximately 90% of those who suffer from these debilitating mental illnesses are women. Although eating disorders are associated with eating and losing weight, they are actually about control, feelings, and self-expression. Eating disorders occur as a result of women's attempts to cope with life's stresses.
