Health question: Does genetics have to be involved with having an Eating Disorder?

Shadow:

It can, directly and indirectly. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3010958/ "Recent behavioral genetic findings suggest substantial genetic influence on [eating disorders anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa]" Mental illness which can be passed down genetically also influences the possibility of eating disorders as well, namely depression and/or anxiety.

Some genetic traits can skip a generation and pop up in the next, if that's what you're asking.
