Men Obsessed With Muscularity May Develop Anorexia

HealthDay (12/30, Mozes) reports that according to a review recently published online in the journal Neuropsychiatry of Childhood and Adolescence, “men obsessed with muscularity” may also develop anorexia. After examining the results of 24 studies encompassing some 279 male patients with anorexia, researchers found that about two-thirds of those studied “said that their dissatisfaction with their body stemmed from a desire for increased muscle mass and lower body fat.”
