Eating Disorders Appear To Be Common In Older Women.

USA Today (6/21, Lloyd) reports that, according to a study appearing today in the International Journal of Eating Disorders, eating disorders appear to be common in older women. The online study of some 1,849 US women found that “13% of women ages 50 and older struggle with the problem — some for the first time in their lives. Eating disorders are more common in women than men and include purging, binge eating, excessive dieting and excessive exercising.”
