" Everybody is listening, but are you being heard? Is what I live by, and those voices which are still in the queue to get heard. I want to be their voice. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Yours Truly
Eating disorders involve self-starvation and overeating. The body is denied the essential nutrients that need to function normally, so it is forced to slow down all its processes to consume energy and other nutrients. This slowing down can have serious medical consequences.
The prevalence of eating disorders in India is lower than that of western countries but appears to be increasing significantly in the country.
Thus a project on eating disorders is felt needed realising the increased current prevalence, incidence of eating disorders, their complications, and increased mortality in different age groups, mainly in adolescents girls. This project also fulfils the need to improve eating disorders’ knowledge and attitude to promote a disease-free or healthy life.
About the Millennium Fellow
I am Nikita Bisht, a 3rd-year student from Media School, Indraprastha College For Women, Delhi University. I find my interest in books, films, theatre and documentaries. My early morning idiosyncrasy is that I meticulously read editorials and headlines before proceeding with my daily course. I contribute short posts and articles to my blogging platform on medium, which is my brainchild.
