estradiol likely plays a role in eating disorders

New leads in how genes and environment interact: MSU Researchers Discover Potential Genetic Factor In Eating Disorders.

Mothers everywhere are now googling "estradiol" like crazy!

P.S. Despite the Gee-Whiz Shocker headlines this line of research is neither new nor shocking. These researchers and many others have been exploring the role of hormones and the developmental process for a while and making great strides.

It is interesting to me that the headlines and stories always start with the same premise: that eating disorders are a conscious thought process. For years we've had these "contrary to what was formerly believed" lead-ins talking about biology and genetics and nutrition and yet the central paradigm doesn't shift. Some day the headlines will start with different assumptions!
