There’s no question about it: people suffering from eating disorders are looking for answers.
And they want answers from experts who have a special kind of expertise in their field.
But the people in charge of answering those questions have yet to make it to the doorsteps of the world’s largest and most powerful scientific community.
And even when they do, they are not getting answers.
“This is a very important issue, a very serious issue, because it’s about our mental health,” said Dr. Eric Nissen, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, in a wide-ranging interview with CBS News.
Nissen is the leader of the most comprehensive mental health research in the world, which he said is the largest ever.
He and his team of researchers are doing their best to help solve this issue, but he said there is “still a lot of work to do” in the field.
Dr. Paul Schramm, director and chair of the department of psychiatry at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, also called it a “tough, complicated problem.”
“This research is a long-term, complex work, but it is very important to the public health, because the effects are very serious,” he said.
Schramm said there are many people with eating disorders who are living in poverty, but also many people who suffer from anorexia and bulimia.
He said he has seen “the results of a lot more research that’s not necessarily being done” on the topic.
“What I would say to you is that the science is clear,” Schramms said.
“The effects are not going away.
The public health and the health care community needs to work together.”
Dr. Mark A. Schulman, director emeritus of the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, said he is “not optimistic” that we will see breakthroughs in treating eating disorders in the near future.
But, he said, there are a lot “of good reasons to be optimistic” and said that “there are a number of steps that are now on the way.”
Schulman said the next big step for scientists will be to develop drugs to treat the effects of eating disorders, something he has advocated for decades.
“We have to develop effective treatments that will prevent the eating disorders,” Schulmen said.
The problem is, there is no pharmaceutical or biologic solution, Schulmans said, and the only way to do that is to work with “other stakeholders” to address the issue.
“I think there are some great people who are working on the issue, and we are working with them,” Schoulmans said.
“But there are other stakeholders, we are not sure how to address them.”
Scholtsman said he would be surprised if scientists could ever get to the point where they could “discover the cause of an eating disorders.”
“I can’t imagine it.
I can’t think of a better time,” he added.”
The real question is, how do we get there?
How do we understand the cause, and what’s the best way to treat it?
That is going to be a big challenge.”
For the past several decades, experts have been trying to solve this question, but there is still no cure for anorexics, bulimics and others with eating problems.
Schulmans and other experts say there are “many important factors” that lead to the development of eating problems, including poor nutrition, lack of exercise, stress, poverty, unemployment and social isolation.
They also say the effects aren’t limited to specific disorders, and they suggest that many of these factors may also be contributing to other conditions like depression and anxiety.
For example, the researchers say the genetic variations of the human body may also play a role in the development and severity of eating and other disorders.
“There are some very important genetic changes that occur in the human brain that may predispose people to anorexesia,” Scholtsmans said of the eating disorder.
He also said there may be a link between eating disorders and autism, which is a disorder where people experience intense urges and compulsive behaviors and where eating is an important part of daily life.
Scholars say eating disorders affect millions of people worldwide, but they have been difficult to study because many of the people affected have been unable to speak up about their eating disorders.
Scholmans said that research into eating disorders is critical to understanding the cause and treatment of the conditions.
“It’s the only part of the brain that’s involved in the disease, so it’s really important that we understand this disease so that we can develop treatments to prevent it from happening again,” he explained.
Schumms said there has been a “long time of research on eating disorders” but there hasn’t been a lot done.
“People with eating issues tend to be the same,” Schumms explained.
“It’s hard to tell who’s more vulnerable, because people are
