Eating disorders in adolescents
Date:11/19/2007

The study was published online in the International Journal of Eating Disorders (http://www.interscience.wiley.com/journal/eat), the official journal of the Academy for Eating Disorders.

Led by Y. May Chao of Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, researchers examined data from nationally representative samples of high school students from 1995 to 2005.

The data suggested that black female adolescents are the least likely to practice weight control, while white female adolescent
