Remember that correlation does not mean causation.

Isn't anorexia triggered by someone wanting to take control of a situation that they feel that they've lost control. If so, maybe the specific pressures that we have in our society, which also doesn't suffer from poor access to food, acts as that trigger?
Doing things we hate is the price we pay to avoid loneliness.
