According to (4therapy.com) "Anorexia Nervosa" it’s a harmful eating disorder most commonly on young women. The disorder makes the person lose weight abnormally because, intentionally the person start to starve, there are two types of anorexia the one the person starts starving extremely and the other one is when the person eats a large amount of food and then use the "self-induced vomiting." Basically what they saying is, the person introduced their finger into their mouth to vomit. They become so obsessed with this strategy that gaining weight is not allowed in their mind, and they will not eat in public or most of the time. Anorexics reject sharing meals with families and friends. In the article “Anorexia Nervosa” (4therapy.com) it states that this emotional illness starts on the adolescent and the causes might vary. For instance, the divorce of the parents, bullying in school, participation in sports like modeling, horse racing etc. The article in the website also says that people who actually have anorexia don’t assume that this illness can cause extremely dangerous results for them. The simple fact of their malnourishment can affect their organs like their heart. Their heart can start beating slower and slower and it can lead to a heart attack in the majority of the cases when the anorexic is too advanced the person cannot resist the attack and died. The article also states that in some cases the individual experienced seizure attacks and serious nerve problems in their hands and feet and damaging thinking disorders (thoughts may come and go rapidly). The damage that anorexics do to themselves can be permanent because even though they can recover from the anorexia by taking professional therapy and eating the calories their body needs, they can fall into a deep depression and they need to be constantly under psychotherapy because most of them think about taking their own life away. Anorexia is very dangerous.
