    Anorexia, an anthology in the At Issue series, presents excerpts of articles from various people on the causes, treatment, and publicity of anorexia. Unfortunately, there is little in the way of scientific information and documentation. Instead, the vast majority of it is opinion. Some of the articles come across as very preachy and some articles repeat similar information with some of it being repeated word for word. In the editor's effort to appear balanced, they include an article from a pro-anorexia website explaining why anorexia is a good thing, complete with myths they dispel and their commandments. While some of this information is discounted in the article that follows it, the editor's choice to include it can be seen as detrimental to the teenagers who may read it.
