77. I don't think "blaming" is the right word
The OP links to several scientific studies that look into a genetic component for this. You haven't cited any backup for your theory. Science looks for causes, mechanisms and cures--not blame.

Certainly a component of anorexia is low self-esteem -- all the more reason that "blame" should be used sensitively in any discussion of how to help people with this condition.
