At least 30 million people of all ages and gender suffer from an eating disorder in the United States. February 24th through March 1st is Eating Disorder Awareness Week, a movement that aims to show support for people with eating disorders and raise awareness for the prevalence of these disorders. There are several different types of eating disorders, with the most common being Anorexia, Bulimia, and Binge Eating Disorder. They can affect any age, gender, or social class. However, eating disorders are most likely reported during the adolescent years and into early adulthood.
