    How the luxury industry promotes depression and feelings of inadequacy!

    How the romantic novels industry promotes feelings of discontent in relationships!

    Because a couple of anorexic models have died. That's why people are up in arms.

    Some anorexia statistics:

    The average woman is 5”4’ and weighs 140 pounds. The average model is 5”11’ and weighs 117pounds. Most fashion models are thinner than 98% of American women.
    Smolak L. (1996). National EatingDisorders Association/Next Door Neighbors puppet guide book.

    Anorexia is the 3rd most common chronic illness among adolescents.
    Public Health Service’s Office in Women’sHealth, Eating Disorder Information Sheet, 2000.

    A young woman with anorexia is 12 times more likely to die than other women her age withoutanorexia.
    Mortality in Anorexia Nervosa. American Journal of Psychiatry, 152(7), 1073-1074

    20% of people suffering from anorexia will prematurely die from complications related to theireating disorder, including suicide and heart problems.
    The Renfrew Center Foundation for Eating Disorders, "EatingDisorders 101 Guide: A Summary of Issues, Statistics and Resources," published September 2002, revised October 2003, The Renfrew Center Eating Disorder Treatment Facility.

    As many as 40$ of fashion models are experiencing an eating disorder.
    (The report is the result of an enquiry set up by the British Fashion Council under the supervision of Baroness Kingsmill. The aim was to find out how much pressure there is on models to stay very thin, and what effect this pressure might have on them.)

    Here's a conundrum- models keep getting thinner and the average person keeps getting fatter......



    You know who else is likely to have eating disorders at a much higher rate than the gen pop, much like models? Female athletes.

    Male athletes, too:

    A Study conducted by Cornell University found that 40% of male football playerssurveyed engaged in some sort of disordered eating behavior.

    I think wrestlers are actually worse than fashion models - laxatives, wearing trashbags on 95-degree days and spitting continuously (!!) to "make weight".

    There's your problem. Stop using bargain basement models.
