Best Answer


Eating disorders such as binge-eating are influenced by multiple factors:

- behavior, emotions, and attitudes surrounding weight, body appearance and food issues.

- Fashion magazines, toys, media, society, fashion, friends, and spirituality impact the way we see ourselves, how we think of food and how these two factors interact.

- We are given unrealistic images and expectations (a 6 foot model weighing 105 pounds + eating a 1,000+ calorie burger -- these images contradict each other).

How we process these factors(this can be influenced by family history) can lead to binge-eating.

What do poor people suffer from?

Some just suffer from poverty itself and bad breaks in life. Some may suffer from poor character and bad decision-making abilities. Others suffer from mental illness and/or substance abuse. Poor people may suffer from depression and medical problems as a result of living in poverty. Of course, in some parts of the world, it is the government that is the problem, and they do what they can to keep certain people poor. For instance, food given to some starving nations is either confiscated and given to the military, or simply not allowed to be given to anyone. So it just lays on the docks and rots.
