Dr. Google Should Not Be your Physician

In over a collective 100 yearInternets of experience, our team has never met a person who wants to binge eat. An internet search using Google looking for information about the causes of binge eating disorder will produce hundreds of articles about this condition as well as hundreds of comments disparaging this condition as just another excuse for people to overeat. Unfortunately, this is both false and misleading.

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is due to chemical imbalances in the brain, likely caused by genetics. This means that it is not something a person can control but rather a medical condition that necessitates professional attention.

Don’t let uninformed individuals on the internet tell you otherwise.

To learn more about BED and current approaches to treatment through medical research, call the Institute for Advanced Medical Research at 770-817-9200.
