A Manifesto of Eating Disorder Pride
Eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder are some of the most deadly "mental illnesses;" however, research into the nature of these conditions and possible treatments remains virtually unfunded. As a result, there is no standard model of treatment for eating disorders and no definitive information on the number of people in the U.S. who suffer from one or more of these conditions.
openly addresses the national epidemic of eating disorders and offers practical suggestions for how to effectively promote awareness and change in a more responsible and compassionate way. Issues addressed include success rates for eating disorders treatment, current research, mortality and eating disorders, the presence of eating disorders in both sexes and all ages, overcoming social stigma, and eating disorders activism.

openly addresses the national epidemic of eating disorders and offers practical suggestions for how to promote awareness and change in a more responsible and compassionate way. The concluding section offers concrete ideas about what should be done differently at all levels of eating disorders research and treatment. In the spirit of other manifestos, these ideas are presented as demands; changes that are necessary for eating disordered people to insure their survival. Underlying this strategy is the idea that people have to work together to achieve these ends. According to Kraatz, to the extent that readers come together, they will be able to gain some long overdue access to adequate healthcare.
