come from families with high standards...

Tell me that is a ridiculous statement please! To just have a blanket statement like that for everyone that is anorexic or bulimic is ridiculous!! My dh is in a class and had his exam today and those were two of the questions, put into true or false.  I would say that those are opinions, not facts...how can that be a question on a fricken test...ugh i hate his professor though, everything he does is ridiculous, but this one iritated me idk why.

There is correlation between high standards and anorexia. But crazy families sounds unprofessional. It would also be proper to say "there is a higher %" not just "they come from this"

 Thats exactly what i told my dh, he asked me the question and i was like that cant be a true or false because each person is different, but since your teacher is crazy what did he say was the answer

 ya or that there is a correlation etc, not anorexic people come from families with high standards...true or false...thats what it said! whatever the prof is stupid, he revised the scientific method becuase he said the book was "wrong" he uses his opinions as fact in his class, so glad i'm not in his class

Agreed. Those are stupid questions. I've had both in the past and my childhood was pretty normal.
