Sunday Smorgasbord

I search the web for eating disorder-related research and news (and some stuff only tangentially related to eating disorders, and even a few bits that I just feel like sharing) so you don't have to.

Enjoy the smorgasbord, folks!

Seven alternatives to evidence-based medicine. This article also contains the first confirmed sighting of a sense of humor amongst doctors.

Yet another reason to smile: Smiling leads to physiological changes in the brain that cool blood and trigger happy feelings. So feel free to give someone the finger- just do it with a grin!

Specific adipocytokines profiles in patients with hyperactive and/or binge/purge form of anorexia nervosa

Two new articles on treating food addiction:

About Me

My photo
I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.

Drop me a line!
