Taub, Diane E.; Blinde, Elaine M.
Adolescence, v27 n108 p833-48 Win 1992
Comparison of high school female athletes (n=100) and nonathletes (N=112) revealed that athletes were more likely than nonathletes to possess certain behavioral and psychological correlates of eating disorders. There were few differences among various sport teams. Gender-role orientation was generally not critically variable. (Author/NB)
