Are Eating Disorders an addiciton?

What is the Evidence That Eating Disorders are Addictions?

The Calgary Addiction Program presents Dr. Kristin von Ranson.

The podcast of her lecture at the Calgary Addiction Program conference day in August 2009. The lecture is a very good overview of the thinking in the field. There is a large cormodibity of substance abuse/dependence and eating disorders. How is this explained? She doesn't make the case one way or another but leaves the listener interested in the topic with helpful ways to think about the question.

I recommend it to you. You can access it by clicking here.
