Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The eating disorders of anorexia nervosa and bulimia have not been just recently documented; in fact, anorexia nervosa has been recognized in medical literature for centuries, as references were made by Morton (1694), Gull (1874) and Laseque (1873), and bulimia has been recognized 1 by that term for the last few decades (Peters, Butterfield, Swassing, & McKay, 1984). It has been in recent years, however, that these eating disorders have received considerable attention in literature and research. Partially responsible for this relatively new-found prominence is the large number of young adolescents who are involved.
