On September 5th 2008 ABC 20/20 aired a document on Orthorexia Nervosa, an eating disorder classified by an obsession with healthy eating/food (the problem is in the mentalities and attitudes towards food, not the food choices themselves - those only become problematic when they become restrictive and imbalanced for one's health). I do not feel this document clearly articulated the intensity and crazy reality of orthorexia nervosa. Here is a brief reaction from me.
You can read the article online and watch the 2 part document by following these links:

The article itself:
I also encourage you all to speak up. I'm very disappointed to see so many people who support this AS a valid eating disorder, and also who say they support me, silencing their voices on the public comment forum.
