Eating DisordersBook - 2012
The Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions essay found in this book states that eating disorders are a growing threat to public health. Essayist Malcolm Evans presents readers with the opposite view that the threat of eating disorders is distorted. The Royal College of Psychiatrists states that pro-ana websites should be regulated, while essayist Adam Thierer argues they should not be. Several issues like these are debated for readers across four chapters. Readers will evaluate the seriousness of eating disorders, possible causes, the relationship between the Internet and eating disorders, and whether treatment is effective.
