There are many different ways to understand eating disorders, and human experience in general. In making sense of our world, people draw on cultural understandings including institutional knowledge (e.g., the biomedical system), pop culture (e.g., what we see on television or read about on social media), and political powers/systems (e.g., policies, social norms, and values) that converge to shape what we know.
