Good God!! People wake up for F sake. Anorexia is a side effect of most vaccines, including humans, cats, dogs and horses. Do a search, anorexia and vaccines and read. Here's some examples of vaccine damage:

www.compleatmother.com/vaccine-refusal.htm
www.sailhome.org/Concerns/Vaccines.html
Is there anything that vaccinations do not cause?

Why are vaccinations being blamed for every problem humans develop, and yet never given credit for preventing terrible diseases?

You might want to get out and travel the world. Go to some of the third world countries still dealing with Polio and the like.

It might help you understand that there are still children who do not get to live long enough to blame their problems on a vaccination.

Pretty sure they would take the chance if given a choice.

American culture refuses to do the obvious which is eat healthy food. Our obsession with food is getting crazy. We want food that tastes rich, sweet, salty but we do not own up to the consequences of such a diet.

Children dealing with eating disorders are just mirroring the insanity on an extreme scale. They are astute and observant. They are fighting back the only way they know how to prevent obesity.

If children were never introduced to excessively rich fast foods, chicken nuggets, Mac and cheese, and all that crap, they would not have to deal with this terrible dilemma of eating this crap and then trying to figure out how to stay thin in the process.

We as a society need to do something drastic and quit socializing kids to eat this childish, pathetic diet of fat, salt and sugar.

We automatically give them this crap because we think they will not eat anything else.

Well, news flash, kids in third world countries eat vegetables and they do not complain. They also wish they had a reason to be anorexic.

American culture is idiotic, self absorbed and downright self destructive.

Just as many Americans are self-destructive in their own masochistic opinions of themselves.

This is true, except for the focus on America. The third world is catching up, as their incomes increase. Chinese and Mexicans in particular are getting very fat.
"According to a new report from the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization, the United States is no longer the world's fattest developed nation&#8213;Mexico is. Nearly a third of Mexican adults (32.8 percent) are considered obeseĀ—people aged 20 and older whose body mass index (BMI) is 30 and above."

Short of shoving food down someone's throat, there is no cure. If someone wants to starve themselves they will find a way. Just as if someone wants to eat themselves to death, they too will find a way if food is plentiful.

Anorexia is a mental health condition or an adverse vaccine reaction, NOT a lack of appetite. Vaccines cause Autism, ADD ADHD and more
