Eating disorders have long been considered more common among women than men, but a new study from Harvard shows a significant number of men suffer from eating issues as well. An often-overlooked issue, we examine how eating disorders affect men, and why they're less likely to seek help.

Guests:

Ron Saxen, former model who has written about eating disorders in a book called The Good Eater

Terrill Bravender, associate professor of pediatrics, psychiatry and family medicine; director of adolescent medicine Duke University Medical Center
