Stunningly filmed in sharply focused black and white

Contributed on behalf of Cathy J. Saloff-Coste, MS, RD, CDN, registered dietician and nutrition consultant at Hammond Health Center.

February 21-27 is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW), and the focus this year is on early detection and intervention. The earlier an eating disorder is recognized and treatment begins, the better chance there is for a full recovery. 

Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental disorder, and up to 30 million Americans will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their life. Eating disorders are complex life-threatening bio-psycho-social illnesses, not lifestyle choices. They profoundly impact not only those who are ill, but also their friends, family, and the whole community.
