This Topic  deserves  a little space in my blog because anamia are two diseases dangerous. What is anamia?Well, in  spanish the word anamia refers  to the anorexia and bulimia.anorexia and bulimia are the most common eating disorders and affect almost 15 percent of American teenagers 

The difference between bulimia and  anorexia is  that  in the first case the girls or boys  eat a lot and then They vomit everything. They do it  by themselves and the anorexic people  don’t eat or their food is very lightfurthermore Bulimics are usually within normal weight range while anorexics are extremely underweight.  

Bulimics people can spend all day planning their next vomiting, while anorexics can spend all day thinking about what they can’t eat at their next meal. 

Why do they do it? Because They want to be accepted by the people. They want to be perfects and in their illness They think that to be thin is synonymous  of being perfects.They have a low self-esteem. They  ask  help by means of this illness.But the  main influence  are the  women who appear in T.V, on internet. Women who sell beauty and thinner bodies. 

 CONSEQUENCES

Physical symptoms of anorexia result from the behavior of trying to achieve weight loss. It has consequences such as sensitivity to temperature, dry skin, brittle hair, vitamin deficiency, heart rate slows, and blood pressure falling due to the fact that the body maybe adjusting to the loss of energy intake. 

Some specific physical symptoms associated with bulimia is the potential for gastric rupture , inflammation and possible rupture of the esophagus during vomiting, and for those who habitually induce vomit may have a swelling look to their face due to the enlargement of the salivary glands as well as damaged teeth due to the acidity of the vomit. 

But the  worst consequence  of these diseases  is the DEATH”.  I was near to an anorexic people and I only can say to you;  this people need a lot of support and love  for going out of this disease.They ask help  in silent. They survive with anxiety with the knot in the throat. They feel alone. Their heart loses the faith.
