As an anthropology major, we've often times talked about ethnic psychoses.Ethnic psychoses are mental disorders specific to certain ethnic groups. In the western world, anorexia nervosa would be an example of one. With that being said, I found this article very interesting. It questioned the link between anorexia and culture. It's still in my opinion that anorexia nervosa is a western ethno psychosis. I think that the findings in this research has more to do with colonialism of those countries.
