This article was about the many ways that Alcohol Abuse and Eating Disorders are related. As stated "folks with genetic alcohol dependence, they will likely also be genetically predisposed to eating disorders or for folks with known eating disorders the likelihood of alcohol related issues are also stronger genetically related". People who have these issues usually turn to laxatives, making their self vomit, etc.. These are very serious problems to treat,, if known with them you should turn to professional in health care that deal with these sort of things. I chose this article because it looked like a strong topic to do research on.

This article was about how eating disorders affect people who are bipolar. Basically people who are bipolar have mood swings and that causes them to eat more and more. As they do this their body mass grows and when they see they eat and when they have their mod swings also. I chose this because I wanted to see how eating disorders affect people who are bipolar.
