The National Eating Disorders Association uses in February 24-March 1st to teach people about eating disorders and encourage discussion about them. This week, we’re going to bring you lots of facts (and plenty of resources) about eating disorders. If you or a friend is struggling, please reach out for help.

FACT #1: More than ninety percent of those with eating disorders are women. Further, the number of American women affected by these illnesses has doubled to at least five million in the past three decades. -U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
