Also people with an ED often think the same, have the same thoughts... hence why many find my blog and realise they arent alone. That the thoughts they have, someone else has also had them and you can relate. Though that is also due to starvation.... the mind becomes something else, behaves in different ways when it is starved. Or when its obsessed with exercise or depressed etc
However, back to the actual study....
Charlotte's Helix was founded in the UK to honour the eating disorder advocacy work of
Charlotte Bevan. It is part of a global effort to collect DNA samples from over 25,000
individuals who have had anorexia at any time in their life, otherwise known as #AN25K.
The goal of Charlotte’s Helix is to add at least 1,000 UK DNA samples to #AN25K (Source: X)
If you want to donate or help with this research and funding of the project go here:
https://www.charlotteshelix.net/donate-to-the-helix.html Once i am able to i will definitely be
donating what i can. Because if they can somehow figure out what gene there is that causes
an eating disorder then thats one step closer to helping people and to fight the illness.
If you are in the UK and want to maybe participate in the research click here:
