    Thank you for a very informative article, and even more for promoting awareness.

    I must say, that it saddens me to know that in a world with diseases like HIV and Cancer, it is illnesses such as eating disorders that are still such killers - something that can actually be remedied is still taking lives and hurting people!

    I've always thought anorexia and (especially) bulimia were a rarity in men.

    So did I - another suprising fact for me, was that men have also been known to suffer from breast cancer.

    I apologize in advance, and realize that I'll probably get beat up over this, but I have no sympathy for people with eating disorders or other addictions. Cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, muscular dystrophy, these are illnesses. Something someone chooses to indulge in, knowing it's self-destructive, is not an illness. It's a choice, pure and simple.

    You've obviously never known anyone personally with an addiction or an eating disorder.

    I've learnt that Aneroxia is more of a CONTROL issue then anything else. The people who suffer this are smart and like to be able to controls things. When they can' control an issue they susbsitute another to control. Food is the easiest thing to control. It doesn't fight back with you or argue with you.

    I sure have, even in my own family. And I know that millions of people every day are conquering addictions of various sorts with nothing but guts and sometimes a good support system. It all boils down to what one wants the most in life.
