Implications - Anorexia is a serious and extremely harmful eating disorder that is characterized by an abnormal and excessive fear of obesity and weight gain. Symptoms of anorexia often include a drastic weight loss and a powerful aversion to food, and it is a disorder that is more common in women than in men. With that being said, it is a dangerous and very real condition that can affect both genders and all age age groups.
