16 Myths about Eating Disorders Eating disorders are a choice. Reality: Eating disorders are biologically based illnesses.
17 Myths about Eating Disorders Eating disorders happen only to rich white girls. Reality: Eating disorders happen to people of all gender, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status.
18 Myths about Eating Disorders Overbearing mothers and distant fathers cause eating disorders. Reality: Parents do not cause eating disorders. However, strained relationships with parents can exacerbate eating disorder symptoms. Likewise, supportive parents can help people with eating disorders recover more quickly.
19 Myths about Eating Disorders People develop eating disorders because they want to be thin. Reality: Although weight and appearance play a part in eating disorders, being thin is usually a pleasant side effect or a measurable goal of feeling better.
20 Myths about Eating Disorders People develop eating disorders because they want control. Reality: While people with eating disorders may temporarily feel more in control, an effect which perpetuates the disease, the eating disorder is developed out of more complicated circumstances and control is always shortlived. Soon, the eating disorder controls the person.
21 Myths about Eating Disorders The media is responsible for eating disorders. Reality: Most of the media in the U.S. creates ideals of women that are impossible to achieve. While these unrealistic and oversexed representations of the female body foster an environment in which eating disorders thrive, the media is not solely responsible for this biologically based mental illness.
