Nov. 11, 2013: Eating Disorders: Not Just a Teen Problem

Many of us assume that eating disorders only affect Caucasian women between 16 and 25, or that they're only an extreme form of dieting. But at the major facilities treating anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders, a majority of clients are over 25, and a significant percentage over 50. Only one in ten people suffering from these conditions seeks treatment, and a shocking one in ten dies from it.

Jennifer Lombardi is an anorexia survivor who is now director of the Eating Recovery Center of California (formerly Summit Eating Disorders and Outreach Program).  In this interview with Kate Raphael, she discusses the myths and facts about eating disorders and what you can do if you think someone you care about has one.
