Abstract:

This episode looks at the increase in the number of people with anorexia. The condition has been known for hundreds of years-long before the media and the fashion industry created a thin "ideal" for women to aspire to. It has the highest mortality rate of all psychiatric illnesses, yet very little is known about what causes it or how to cure it. This exploration into the latest research on the causes and effects of eating disorders follows scientists as they track down anorexia in the least expected places. They look for the answers to some key questions: Are eating disorders inherited? Is there an "anorexia gene"? Do anorexics have a malfunctioning stress response system that makes them sick?
