8:30 Window on the World

In the second part of the series on Eating Disorders Emily Thomas explores a stereotype with potentially life-threatening consequences - the idea that eating disorders are a problem that only affects white women in wealthy countries. She talks to black women in South Africa, Nigeria and the US who have had eating disorders. Their experiences and their cultural backgrounds are very different, but they all say the prevailing stereotype that eating disorders are a 'white' problem, makes it harder for black women to speak out and get the help they need.
