Eating Disorders Among Young Men May Be Rising.

The Los Angeles Times (6/14, Alpert) reports, “High school boys in Los Angeles are twice as likely to induce vomiting or use laxatives to control their weight as the national average, with 5.2% of those surveyed saying they had recently done so,” according to a new CDC survey. Chicago and Houston also saw rates that exceeded the average. “Some experts say they are unsure whether more boys and men are in fact suffering such disorders or whether more are now willing to seek help.”
