Anorexia is a loss of appetite or a loss of interest in food. Sometimes people get confused and many people think that Anorexia Nervosa is the same thing but, Anorexia Nervosa is a serious mental illness. Patients have not “lost” interest in food, they have intentionally restricted their food intake because of the fear of being or becoming fat.
I chose this disorder for my health buzz because it influences many teenagers of our age, and their relatives. This can technically affect anyone and everyone should be proud and feel confident about themselves.
By doing this healthbuzz, I learned that it’s VERY important to eat and to feel good about yourself and that Anorexia also causes people to get not only physical but also emotional and mental problems, which can influence the rest of their lives.
