Carrie Arnold, of the excellent ed bites is starting a campaign to raise the profile of just how common eating disorders are.
The statistics are very scary:
Each year, roughly 4 million babies are born in America.
Approximately 500,000 of these babies will develop an eating disorder.
Every year has 525,600 minutes.
That means that every 1.05 minutes, a child will be diagnosed with an eating disorder.
Every minute, a parent will be told “Your child has an eating disorder.”
