Quoting a study published in the Edition of International Journal of Eating Disorders, Padma Shri & Dr. BC Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India & and Perfect Health Mela and National Vice President Elect IMA said that eating disorders are contagious.

Dr. Aggarwal said that binge eating, fasting; diet pill use and other eating disorder symptoms cluster amongst young adolescent females.

In the study it was found that a pair student from the same State were from 4 to 10% more likely to share an eating disordered behavior compared to pairs in which each person came from a different State.

Dr. Aggarwal said that most students try to copy the eating fads of one another. The study proves that why people follow each other and attempt weight loss programmes even if they are not scientifically proven.
