Last week Facebook, Google, and Apple removed videos and podcasts by the prominent conspiracy theorist Alex Jones from their platforms (Twitter did not). Their actions may have prompted increased downloads of Jones ’ Infowars app. Many people are debating these actions, and rightly so.

What is the public health burden of eating disorders? The burden is a product of two factors: 1) the prevalence of these disorders and 2) the degree of disability (including morbidity and mortality) caused by these disorders. In this issue of Biological Psychiatry, Udo and Grilo (1) offer new numbers for this “burden equation.” Using data from the 2012 to 2013 National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC-III), they have attempted to estimate the prevalence and correlates, including self-reported disability, of anorexia nervosa, bulimia, and binge-eating disorder.
