Unhappy With Looks, Teens Can Indulge In Binge Eating

Researchers from the University of Minnesota School of Public Health say that teenagers and adolescents who are not comfortable with their physical //looks may be at an increased risk of future binge eating, smoking, poor eating, and decreased physical activity.
