Dysfunctions of the alimentary behavior

The psychiatrist, Dr. Luis Rojo, Boss of the Section of Infantile-juvenile Psychiatry and of Dysfunctions of the Alimentary Behavior of the Hospital 'La Fe', it denounces the ignorance and incomprehension of this illness.

This doctor that I have known for years, because I work in this Hospital, he has an extensive experience. He and their team have an exquisite way of trying to this type of sick. It describes us, in the newspaper 'Levante', this illness that is very devastating, overalls for the scorn, the stigmatization and disqualification of patient and families that suffer this illness.

I am remembering, the picture of Toscani, of 'Isabelle Caro', made for the advertising campaign of Benetton of the year 2007. This youth was a sick person of this sad illness that weighed 31 kilos with 26 years.

These girls, say that I eat they don't feel well with themselves, they are fat and they stop to eat. When stopping to eat up they go consuming little by little.

But that that more it indignates me, it is that people believe that is an illness of which the patients have the blame. Not believe that this opinion belongs to few people, in a survey they thought 30 percent that was this way.

Become aware on this bitter and hard illness that is not of 'rich girls' the NERVOUS ANOREXY is a 'I hurt errant.'

This summer I was on vacation in Cantabria, and there the Government of Cantabro, concretely their Counseling of Sanity and Social Services, they have one: Guide of Prevention of the Dysfunctions of the Alimentary Behavior and the Overweight.

In this guide it is spoken of the youths of developed societies and their alterations of the alimentary behavior. For them the clear object of this guide, is the development of educational strategies, not alone for the studying youths, but also its families.
