Study: Eating Disorders Common in Older Women

I just read a news article about a study about eating disorders in older women. The study found that 13% of women 50 or older struggle with eating disorders, some for the first time in their life, and it also found that 62% of those surveyed said their weight/shape had a negative impact on their life. This seriously debunks the myth that eating disorders only effect younger women.
