In brief: Both are bad

Hard to choose between binging and purging: both can really mess up your body and even cause death.
There are people who only binge; they end up massively obese. Purging, whether by vomiting or use of laxitives, may keep the weight under control but puts a lot of strain on the GI system and the body in general, which then can lead to other health problems.
