Anorexia - Overcoming Hunger Pangs Isn’t Just About Will Powe

Anorexia, an eating disorder has now been linked to lack of a neurotransmitter that is responsible for stimulation of appetite//. The study has for the first time proved that overcoming those hunger pangs and avoiding food isn’t just about extraordinary will power alone.

The disease can have a profound impact on the growth and development of the child. More specifically, it can affect frontal lobe brain in development. It is this part of the brain that controls organization and judgment. Developmental delay of the frontal lobe can affect the functionality of an individual, later in life.
