Prevalence of Eating Disorders in American Women

In a survey conducted by SELF Magazine and published in 2008, it was found that “Sixty-five percent of American women between the ages of 25 and 45 report having disordered eating behaviors”. These disordered eating behaviors range from anorexia and bulimia to skipping meals and dieting using unhealthy methods, such as starvation diets and laxatives.
