New Findings Begin To Rule Out Social Causes Of Anorexia

News IHF sent in this link to a story from the UK Independent. It discusses some new research which is suggesting that anorexia nervosa may have genetic, not social, causes. It turns out that people with anorexia exist in remote areas of Africa where Western media has no influence. Also, it is often unexplained why anorexia affects some people more than others, suggesting causes other than social pressures. While the research is not yet conclusive, it does present another way of looking at the disorder. There was no mention if this could also affect the outlook on disorders involving male body image.
