Eating disorders affect every age group. Although many people associate eating disorders with teens, baby boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) are at risk as well.
The following story based on research from the International Journal of Eating Disorders recently appeared in Food and Nutrition:
It has only been in the past few years that eating disorder
research has included the baby boomer population. The results of these recent studies shatter the belief that eating disorders only afflict the young and reveal that boomers have eating disorders at the same rate as teenagers — nearly 4 percent. And an additional 13 percent of boomers partake in at least one core eating disorder behavior such as binge eating, self-induced vomiting, excessive exercise or laxative abuse.
