Researchers find evidence of genetic susceptibility fo AN

A team of researchers is the first to identify a region on chromosome 1 that may contain genes that make individuals vulnerable to developing anorexia nervosa (AN). The findings add to a growing body of research supporting the belief that genetic transmission – in addition to psychosocial factors – contributes to a person’s vulnerability to develop AN.
