Why is anorexia not talked about more? Why do so many people try to keep this disorder in the dark? We know so much about anorexia and its consequences, and this information needs to be shared. Young children should not be kept from this information. Anorexia should be talked about more so that these facts can be shared, and by doing this hopefully younger children will be able to learn at an earlier age how serious of a situation this disorder really is. Talking about such a serious topic openly may make many people uncomfortable, but this is not something that should be hidden anymore. There are so many ways to get help for this disorder and the only way for people to become aware of this, and to find out that they are not alone, is for everyone to become less shy about this situation and learn that talking about this disorder might be able to save someone’s life.
