Eating disorders: when food is the enemy
So many Native gatherings center around food, including feast days, feeds, potlatch and even informal events. But despite traditional connections, some people suffer from an unhealthy relationship to food. Millions of people develop disorders like anorexia, bulimia and binge eating, and the National Institute of Mental Health says researchers are still working to find out why. One 2012 study of 500 Native men and women finds eating disorders affect Native people the same rate as other racial groups. In this program, we'll talk about what eating disorders are, how they affect Native people and what treatment looks like.
Native America Calling is a national call-in program that invites guests and listeners to join a dialogue about current events, music, arts, entertainment and culture.
The program is hosted by Tara Gatewood (Isleta Pueblo) and airs live each weekday from 10-11 a.m. on KIDE 91.3fm.
Join the conversation by calling 1-800-996-2848.Find out more »
