Eating disorder cases have doubled globally, new research shows
from The Sydney Morning Herald
The number of eating disorders recorded annually worldwide has doubled in the past 18 years, with experts partly attributing the increase to greater awareness of a wider range of disorders. French research published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition last month found the global rate of eating disorder prevalence doubled from 3.4% of the population to 7.8% between 2000 and 2018.
