The statistics of the famous Western publication The Sun showed that more and more males are beginning to suffer from various eating disorders – anorexia and bulimia.
The newspaper reports that over the past ten years, the number of young people hospitalized with suspected anorexia or bulimia has tripled only in Britain.
Comparative data show that in 2005, twenty-four males over the age of fourteen were hospitalized due to excessive exhaustion of the body. All of them confirmed one or another violation of eating behavior. And by 2011, the number of such cases per year exceeded eighty hospitalized.
Representatives of the Ministry of Health believe that the desire of males to a beautiful body can lead to such deplorable results. The fact is, representatives of the ministry believe that young people in an effort to build muscle and get rid of body fat for hours exhaust themselves with training, while practically refusing food, and proper nutrition plays one of the determining roles in proper training.
Anorexia and bulimia, although they are called eating disorders, nevertheless belong to the category of psychiatric diseases.
