Anorexia is one of the most terrible diseases and one of the few who gets the proper attention. For several years, the number has been increasing, increasing the number of people whose hearts have ceased to be beaten at the expense of the company that has set up false stereotypes. But not only is anorexia, there are other nutritional disorders, such as bulimia, which are attacks of extraordinary vascular function, where vomiting and manorrhea self-destruct, which is a disorder suffered by men, and among other things includes extremely sporty.

According to the Ministry of Health, in Colombia, from 2009 to 2017, people aged 0 to 19 years were diagnosed with anorexia diagnosis, with an average of 4,322 patients treated a year, with 60.8% of these people being women , which is a real worry because very few people are aware of the magnitude of the problems that these diseases bring with them; It should be noted that girls suffer from a minimum age.

Every year in Mexico, 20,000 new cases of bulimia and anorexia among adolescents are documented, which in the last 20 years represents a 300% increase, according to the Excelsior newspaper. In addition, the National Institute of Psychiatry has shown that 10% of young people with anorexia and 17% have tried suicide with bulimia, while only 25% are specialized treatment.

In Buenos Aires, Argentina, the Ceda Center, offering interdisciplinary, personal and outpatient care, focuses on treatment for bulimia, anorexia and any other type of dietary disorder; there is a team of experts from the field, psychologists, psychiatrists, family therapists and nutritionists dealing with these disorders, since there is an incorrect explanation that these diseases are "cascading" when they are truly specialized in eating life innocent people are affected by measures that the company defines as beauty.

The number of people who suffer from these diseases is increasing and has consequences such as depression, suicide and anxiety. Torture, intimidation and a smile for physical and personal appearances are also a boom for the development of this type of disorder, and today there are many children, young people and adults struggling to overcome this "caprice".
