Summary: Praise for the previous edition: "...accurate, concise information concerning eating behaviors in a user-friendly format...Certainly topical, this encyclopedia will be most welcome in both the young adult and adult departments of public libraries of any size, community college libraries and undergraduate libraries, and high-school libraries."--Booklist "The entries, clearly written and easily understood, will help re...aders find more information...An important addition to most public, special, and academic libraries."--Choice The Encyclopedia of Obesity and Eating Disorders, Third Edition is more relevant now than ever before. Presently almost two-thirds of American adults are overweight and 31 percent are obese. Eating disorders are now affecting a wider range of the population, particularly with increased diagnoses in men and boys, and the anti-carb craze has swept the country with potentially long-lasting ramifications for health and diet. New research has identified significant cultural and racial factors connected to obesity and eating disorders, and new products, such as "neutriceuticals," have hit the market, contributing to misconceptions and uncertainty about healthy diets. This revised and expanded edition includes more than 450 entries, more than 140 of them new. Complete with a history of obesity and eating disorders; chronology of key events, research, and breakthroughs; tables listing key facts and statistics; and a directory of resources and Web sites, this single-volume reference is the first stop in any serious research of these troubling health afflictions. New and revised entries include: *Advertising and obesity *Anorexia nervosa *Atkins diet *Biotech foods *Body mass index *Bulimia nervosa *Cancer links to obesity *Dietary supplements *Food addiction *Genetic factors in eating disorders *Infant eating disorders *Media influence on eating disorders *Mind hunger *Obesity as a class issue *Purging disorder *School and obesity.
