In the U.S., 20 million women and 10 million men suffer from an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia or binge eating disorder. But, despite how common these conditions are, a study done by the University of Oxford shows that eating disorders are poorly understood by health professionals and the general public and common myths about the illness sometimes prevent people have from getting the treatment and support they need.
