Anorexia is one of the worst diseases and one of the few is paying attention. The number has increased for several years, and so the number of people whose heart has stopped beating at the expense of a society that has falsified stereotypes has risen. Not only is anorexia, there are other eating disorders, such as bulimia, which are attacks of extreme poisoning, when vomiting and manorexia are themselves provoking, a disorder that men have suffered and, among other things, extremely sports.

According to the Colombian Ministry of Health, from 2009 to 2017, people aged 0 to 19 years with anorexia were treated, with an average of 4,322 patients being treated annually, with 60.8% of those being really alarming, few people are aware of the magnitude of the problems they bring with them; It should be noted that girls suffer the smallest age.

In Mexico, 20,000 new cases of bulimia and anorexia in adolescents are documented each year, which has increased by 300% over the last 20 years, as Excelsior reports. Moreover, the National Psychiatric Institute showed that 10% of young people with anorexia and 17% of bulimia attempted suicide, while only 25% received special treatment.

In Buenos Aires-Argentina there is the Ceda Center where it offers interdisciplinary, personalized and outpatient care to treat bulimia, anorexia and any other type of eating disorder; there are a team of psychologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, family therapists and nutritionists who work on these disorders because there is a misconception that these diseases are "foolhardy" when they really specialize in eating innocent people affected by measures that society defines it as beauty.

The number of people suffering from these diseases increases and brings with them consequences such as depression, suicide and anxiety. Bullying, bullying and mockery for physical and personality expressions are also a boom in developing this type of disorder, and today there are many children, young people and adults trying to overcome this "carp".
