Orthorexia? They have to be kidding!


Thanks to Eliza McEmrys for telling me about this: 

Hi Dr. Nestle,: Thank you for maintaining such an interesting blog! I thought this article on “orthorexia” from the Chicago Tribune might be of interest since so many of your blog readers might be spotted checking ingredients in the grocery store or avoiding HFCS – which are apparently sure signs of this new disease! I wonder when the drug to treat it will be released….” 

Avoiding junk food is sign of illness?  Who knew?
