Good new videos on anorexia

I typically don't hesitate to point out improper or inaccurate media coverage of eating disorders. So I think it's only fair that I point out the good coverage when and where it exists. And CBS News recently produced two segments on anorexia, the first featuring recovered author Leslie Lipton, and another featuring Dr. Tim Walsh, my co-author and advisor on Next to Nothing (each video is approximately 6.5 minutes):

I think both do a good job of explaining the personal effects and the medical issues behind AN.

Good job, CBS!

Nicely done! It's pretty rare to see something that isn't all sensationalized. Go CBS!

The little mewing sounds from the kitten were certainly Aria's favorite parts of the video!

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!
