While certainly any behavior or habit can be taken to extreme, apovent I agree with this article that the APA's so called "disorders" and classifications have been taken to the extreme over the years themselves, apovent not to mention they have proven to be quite profitable extremes.  Now Choosing Healthy Foods Called a "Mental Disorder"? http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/Books/Pix/covers/2009/8/15/1250368704719/Young-woman-eating-bowl-o-001.jpg (NaturalNews) "In its never-ending attempt to fabricate "mental disorders" out of every human activity, apovent the psychiatric industry is now pushing the most ridiculous disease they've invented yet: Healthy eating disorder. This is no joke: If you focus on eating healthy foods, apovent you're "mentally diseased" and probably need some sort of chemical treatment involving powerful psychotropic drugs.

So attempting to avoid chemicals, apovent dairy, apovent soy and sugar now makes you a mental health patient? Yep. Apovent According to these experts. If you actually take special care to avoid pesticides, apovent herbicides and genetically modified ingredients like soy and sugar, apovent there's something wrong with you. But did you notice that eating junk food is assumed to be "normal?" If you eat processed junk foods laced with synthetic chemicals, apovent that's okay with them. The mental patients are the ones who choose organic, apovent natural foods, apovent apparently. What is "normal" when it comes to foods? I told you this was coming.."
