Eating related issues are a part of almost everyone's lives in some way. According to statistics, at least 30 million people of all ages and of all genders suffer from a clinical eating disorder, with estimates much higher for those that go unreported. Even more shocking is the every 62 minutes, at least one person passes away as a direct result of an eating disorder & that eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of ANY mental illness.
