No Such Thing As Anorexia.
Serious anorexia (eg. Anorexia nervosa) is actually a systemic
vascular problem also called multiple system atrophy. Other
symptoms include insomnia, hypotentosion, orthostatic-intolerance
which all lead to a diagnosis of arterial tone loss due to vascular and
organic changes. The underlying medical condition common with
several other (improperly) so called "mental illnesses" is the
"endothelial dysfunction". Only gene therapy in very young people
can give them a change to survive.

Do not believe that it is cause by bad habits or cognitive impairment.
Hunger, like breathing, is not much influenced by the cognitive
function. Their body gets wasted because they were born with
significant arterial abnormalities and their body cannot be nourished
and oxygenated regardless how many calories they eat.

Clarification
Can you explain why the posting you reacted to is bull?
You gave no details and no reason why the two medical conditions
mention by the other guy have nothing in common.
Otherwise, we will have to take you word for granted even if your
posting contains words that are probably filtered out in this forum.
