All I've seen on the news the last few weeks is the Terry Shiavo case. I'm quite sick of hearing about it, but this is not going to be a forum for a euthansia debate.

I didn't realize until today that the whole reason she's in a coma is from having an eating disorder. I'm not positive, but I believe her bulimia caused a potassium inbalance. I'm surprised this hasn't been discussed more in the media. But frankly I was just more terrified about the realities of what people (including myself) can do to themselves. Also the amount of pain it can cause all those around you.

Anyways, thought that was a fact you guys may find interesting.
