Were you looking for information about Anorexia? Anoreksia is a common misspelling of anorexia.
Anorexia is a serious eating disorder that is identified by refusal to eat, an intense desire to be thin, repeated dieting attempts, and excessive weight loss. People with this disease have an intense and overpowering fear of body fat and weight gain, and can literally starve themselves to death. Anorexia can slow the heart rate and lower blood pressure, increasing the chance of heart failure. Severe cases can also lead to brittle bones that break easily as a result of calcium loss.
