Increased Attention Given To Eating Disorders In Men.

The San Francisco Chronicle (10/21, Brown), which reported that men account for a greater portion of eating disorders than previously thought, pointed out recent studies, such as one in Canada, suggesting that “as many as one in three cases of anorexia are male, while past estimates have hovered around one in nine.” The Chronicle noted that ignoring the disorder’s prevalence among men creates a stigma that may prevent them from seeking assistance, as well as a bias that may prevent family members or clinicians from recognizing the disorder in men.
