How many Anorexics are there in America?
2 to 5% of Americans experience anorexia problems
Studies show that though primarily thought of as affecting women, anorexia affects males as well. 2% of the American women suffer from anorexia and 2.5% of the American women suffer from bulimia. Statistics do not look too good at all. Imagine that 5-10% of anorexics that die within 10 years after contracting the disease. This is terrible. Needless to say, specialists consider that 18 â€“ 20 % of anorexics die within 20 years after contracting the disease. Moreover, 30-40% of anorexics fully recover.
