They're both diseases, just on opposite ends of the spectrum. So why is one recognized and respected and the other not?
Obesity, anorexia, and bulimia are all eating disorders and they are all addictions. Obese people are addicted to food and eating for their problems and anorexics and bulimics are addicted to not eating and trying to loose weight. They are all mental disorders of some sort. The food or lack of food are their "drugs" of choice instead of alcohol or drugs. It's just like compulsive gambling is an addiction or shoplifting, etc. There is an underlying problem in the brain for all of these people.

I'm just saying if I had a choice I'd rather be fat than anorexic. It will take a lot of therapy to fix anorexia.
