    STRIVING FOR THE PERFECT DIET IS MAKING US SICK

    "“Our culture is promoting health now, which is great,” says Sondra Kronberg, a spokesperson for the National Eating Disorder Association. “But people of certain temperaments take healthy eating to an extreme.” They agonize over sourcing and cooking methods, isolate themselves from social situations, and develop magical thinking about what certain foods can do."

    I find it interesting that the article has a name for obsessive healthy eating. My question is, is it truly a disease?

    With this type of eating, which for decades People have been told to watch what they eat, there be a pharmaceutical drug out that helps to treat this "disorder"?
