Though some of the causes of disorder conditions have been widely agreed upon by World Health Organization (World Health Organization (WHO) Study Group, 1994), a lot remains unknown hence the presence of many discrepancies in the existing literature on eating disorders. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE), (2004) has explored into the various causes of eating disorders and concluded that the condition can be preceded by overeating and overweight conditions in the victims and later on culminate into continuous desist to foods, purging and induced vomiting. Eating disorders are indiscriminate and affect both men and women across all age groups (Becker, Grinspoon, Klibanski, Herzog, 1999). Among the most vulnerable groups include young women, adolescents, and female athletes. Even though the condition is most common in the categories mentioned above, all persons are liable to developing the condition at any age (Becker, Grinspoon, Klibanski, Herzog, 1999).A wide array of methodologies has been devised to diagnose the occurrence of the disease including both medical therapeutics and psychological procedures. No definite drug has been identified to treat eating disorders since these are psychotic conditions. However, psychotherapeutic procedures have however been recommended by various researchers and medical experts as the most appropriate method of combating the occurrence of the condition (Fairburn, O’Connor, Doll, Palmer, 2007). The effects borne by eating disorder conditions on humans are far-fetching, majorly negative effects. The occurrence of the disorder condition affects all aspects of a person’s life ranging from their, physical orientations to the psychotic conditions. Among the most notable effects are overweight conditions, hallucinations, psychological defects such as aphasia, health deterioration in the individuals suffering from the disease, social defects, among other notable defects.Numerous debates have been set to discern the causes of eating disorders in human beings.
