hitting facts. Anorexia nervosa is a very complex disease that can affect almost anyone of us when influenced by certain surrounding us situations. It occurs when someone looses control over dieting and becomes obsessed with food, weight, body size and shape. The main triggering factor is our society that promotes thinness and puts excessive emphasis on appearance. This makes people want to conform to unrealistically thin models and in order to slim down fall on track of starvation. In this process body releases endorphins that cause the addiction. Some will recover fully, some will stay marked forever by Anorexia Nervosa, and others will die. Lets not permit this and stop ourselves, our friend, relative or any other person before it is to late. Works sited: 1.Huebner, Hans F.,
