Lecturing on “Eating Disorders in the 80’s,” Professor of Biology M.R.C. Greenwood ‘68 said, "Most people believe anorexia and obesity are caused by voluntary emotions, but there are often genetic problems behind these diseases." "Greenwood began," wrote Walter N. Hamilton '86 in The Miscellany News, "by defining eating disorders as obesity, anorexia and bolemia.... The diseases are genetic and familial, and are often caused [by] an excessiiveness of deficiency in sex hormones. This causes victims of obesity to either think they should constantly eat of makes them become hungry too frequently. The opposite is true for anorexia and bolemia."     The Miscellany News
