It has been widely speculated [and proven for the most part] that people who develop Eating Disorders were born susceptible to it and that society was the thing that triggered the disease.
So here is my question: after reading the article posted in ed_ucate Here which states that 1/10 Argentinian girls have an Eating Disorder which is second only to Japan, I thought, well why does their society have so many more girls with EDs?

So my question is: carrying on with the idea that you are born susceptible to an eating disorder, why are there more cases of EDs? Are there generally more babies there who are susceptible? Are there more social triggers?
If you believe the later, then is it possible that a greater number of us are actually susceptible then once thought? (if 1/10 are getting one in Argentina, assuming that more are susceptible, then could it be 1/5 could develop one?)

edit sorry, but just to continue that thought, is it possible that everyone is susceptible to an ED, just in varying degrees?
