Orthorexia: The New Eating Disorder for White People

As if white people didn’t have enough problems, they’ve been hit by a new disorder called orthorexia nervosa, an obsession with “healthy or righteous eating” that can lead to OCD, malnutrition, or death.  Basically, it’s the health nut’s anorexia.  Here are some orthorexia horror stories:

“New Eating Disorders: Are They For Real?” (http://health.yahoo.net)

Poor 21st-century white people.  They already have more food (obesity) and money (mid-life crises) than they can handle, and now they have to suffer the burden of eating too healthy.  What’s next, too much happiness?  Oh wait.
