Miller, Debra A. F.; And Others
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v17 n2 p305-14 Mar-Apr 1993
This study compared 72 young adult women identified as suffering from bulimia nervosa with 72 matched controls. Bulimic women reported higher rates of sexual abuse after the age of 12 with an adult relative as the perpetrator, reported dissociative experiences as more common, and reported more negative and unusual mealtime experiences.
