I do hate shoppers who do not comply with express lane rules. And I LOOOOOOVE the snarky checker who says loudly, "Excuse me, sir/ma'am, this lane is for ten items or less" to the offender. Hahahahaha. I'm sadistic like that.

thanks, I really appreciate these links. Especially the one about ballet and eating disorders. I have just had to move home after attending the Jacobs school of Music, which has one of the top ballet programs in the country, and it's disturbing how many of the girls have obvious EDs. I'm glad someone is finally bringing the issue to light.

Re the research re the thyroid, I found this link to be amazingly important. When you think about all the areas of the body affected.....
I'm glad someone else is stepping out of the box. I hope more people do studies re the possibility of ED's being endocrine based.
PS, as usual, a great collection!!!

I love Shan and the Adapted to Flee Famine hypothesis. It's the basis of a chapter in my upcoming book. ;)

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.
