In fairness, it should be noted that the diagnosis of “orthorexia” has not yet been included in the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10). So far … Psychologists and psychiatrists, specialists in the correction of eating behavior, operate on it very actively. The term and the first description of the problem appeared in 1997 at the suggestion of the American physician Stephen Bratman. He (the concept, not Bratman) turns 20 this year, the minimum age for reliable long-term research. Anorexia was studied for almost 30 years before it was officially recognized as a disease. Then, in the late 90s, the whole world was obsessed with the idea of \u200b\u200bhealthy eating and fighting fat, so the dangers of orthorexia were deliberately ignored. The topic got a “second wind” thanks to the vegan blog of American Jordan Younger.
