A new treatment against anorexia

-

A new treatment against anorexia could be on the way, after research showed that there is a connection between intestinal bacteria and anorexia. 

  • Anorexia is an eating disorder. So far, it was believed that it was a disease of the mind (obsessive thoughts about food, weight, appearance, and exercise), but now there is also a link to the body. 
  • 5,000 people in Denmark suffer from anorexia. 90% are girls or women. 
  • If you want to talk to someone about being anorexic, you can anonymously (and for free) call this phone line: 70 10 18 18, run by the Association for Eating Disorders.
