Depression and Difficulty Expressing Feelings Are Associated With Eating Disorders
Research has shown that more than half of college women have
experienced eating disorder symptoms (although most do not have full-blown anorexia
or bulimia). While the cause of eating disorders is still unknown, new research
suggests that depression and difficulty expressing one's feelings may be a risk factor
for disordered eating in young women with a history of family problems or abuse.
