Science Cafe: Eating Disorders and Body Image
Anorexia is among the most harmful eating disorders in the U.S., often fueled by media portrayals of unrealistically thin body images. Some researchers contend America is now exporting the problem, selling thinness and over-eating at the same time. We'll talk with local experts about the causes of eating disorders and what we can do to prevent them. It's a Science Café edition of the Sound of Ideas, Monday at 9 on 90.3.
