I'm steeped in sustainability studies, going for my certificate at UCLA and now also taking a free class through coursera.com given by the University of Illinois. The sustainability learning brings me to a clearer picture of what I've belived for many years.

Those of us who have or had an eating disorder are metaphors for the imbalanced consumption of humanity. Our eating disorders effect every phase of our lives. Humanity's consumption disorders effect every phase of life on this planet.
