“Drunkorexia” Trend Seen On US College Campuses

Medscape (6/28, Anderson) reports that “drunkorexia” is “a new and troubling trend in which youth deliberately do not eat and then go on to drink alcohol in excess,” research suggests. The trend now “appears to be sweeping US college campuses.” The apparent goal of the practice is “to get drunker or get drunk faster.” The findings of the1,184-patient study were presented at the 39th Annual Research Society on Alcoholism Scientific Meeting in New Orleans.
