9. Do you think that there is enough information about eating disorders at schools and in media?
depending on school district standards, usually the subject is only brushed over. there are no in-depth information being dished out to students. same goes with the media, it only pops up here and there on Oprah or Dr. Phil (bless his bald head). people are aware of the disorder, but they don't neccessarily comprehend the ending result.

10. Are you aware what damage anorexia/bulimia does to your body?
everyone has the general knowledge that "it is bad for you" or that "you can die from it".
