Food & Eating Disorders

Irregularity in diet results in eating disorders. Commonly, there are two types of such disorders – anorexia & bulimia. While anorexia involves eating too less, bulimia is caused due to overeating. These disorders are effected upon by mental health, with fear of gaining weight resulting in anorexia. Bulimia on the other hand occurs to people who binge eats, mostly junk food. This too has mental implications as the affected individual has no control over themself to prevent overeating. Eating disorders result in poor health due to discrepancies in the diet. Anorexic people are severely under-weight while overeating causes obesity. Apart from eating disorders, unbalanced components in the diet also lead to cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. A person taking in high volumes of carbohydrates in the form of sugars in their diet can suffer from Diabetes. Excess cholesterol is deposited in the blood vessels, increasing the risk of vascular or cardiovascular diseases, which might even lead to heart attacks!
