The Eating Disorders Coalition For research, policy and action.
And The Freed Act Bill.
To change the lives of many action must take place......
Up to 24 million people of all ages and genders suffer from an eating disorder and it also has the highest mortality rate of any mental disorder.
Imagine sitting down for a meal and fearing the food on the plate right in front of you... The only thing going through your mind is "Will this make me fat"
Every bite you take starts to drive you insane.....
Most Americans are unaware of the serious mental issues eating disorders hold. It takes over people’s lives, while they are living in fear of themselves and their bodies. An eating disorder is a condition that makes people spend most of their time awake obsessing over weight, food, calories and their body image. Those obsessions cause people to form four different types of eating disorders: Anorexia, Bulimia, Binging EDNOS.
The pressure that society imprints in people’s daily lives, are the significant contributing factor that exist in eating disorders. Media in society shows people what “perfection” is and that if a women or men do not fit any of the criteria’s, they are unfit. This pushes peer pressure among others and really distributes their insecurities. Causes of eating disorders vary from person to person, but they all have the leading donating element that leads to the ultimate mental illness.

The patient has a distorted body image and
a irrational fear of becoming overweight.
Starvation, excessive weight loss, obsession
Irrational and overemotional feelings
Heart problems, reduction in bone density, muscle loss,
dehydration, dry hair and skin

Cause and Effect
The America government began to develop The Freed Act Bills. The bill is a public policy that will ensure research regarding the disease and also improve awareness with the American public. Their goals for these bills is to stop eating disorders before they start and inform the public while help those who are suffering.

AWARENESS. Americans are unaware of the Freed Act and even eating disorders in general. .
People do not want to go look for answers, they want to be given answers.
Actually getting the bill passed into a law!!!!
Human life is value and Anything must be done in order to insure good health. The Freed Act Bill will create a system that will change generations to come, it will end eating disorders and will decrease cost. Eating disorders will become a myth of the future with the help of the people, the media and the approving signature of the government.

A life without this.....
“Nearly half of all Americans personally know someone with an eating disorder” (DMH).
There are hundreds of millions of people that call America their home. Half of those residences know someone struggling with an eating disorder.
The Freed Act Bill wants to make a change; they want to make people healthier and happier because everyone has one life that they should live.
Passing the bill will decrease the cost in eating disorders because the goal of the bill is to put the issue at rest.
“40 Billion dollars a year is spend advertising, promoting and creating the dieting industry.” (DMH)

Those 40 billion dollars should be spent to recreate the body image, to help with ending eating disorders.

The patient experiences regular bouts of serious overeating, which are always followed by a guilt, which can then lead to extreme vomiting, crash dieting, doing lots of exercise and purging
self-induced vomiting in order to lose and maintain weight
excessive excessive and crazy diet plans
tooth decay, gum disease, acid in mouth, and loss of tooth enamel

Binge eating disorder is characterized by compulsive overeating
people consume huge amounts of food while feeling out of control and powerless to stop
eating to feel better, feeling even worse, and then turning back to food for relief
Related to Bulimia

Far more individuals suffer from EDNOS than from bulimia and anorexia combined. This is just as profound as anorexia or bulimia, because many people with EDNOS engage in the same risky, damaging behaviors seen in other eating disorders.
