Anorexia Nervosa is a condition which, if untreated, can lead to girls dieting till they die. It is a disease of the affluent society - and there is evidence that it is on the increase. Linda Blandford examines this complex illness. What are the symptoms and the causes? Who suffers from it? What kind of treatment is being offered? Producer JENNY DE YONG
