Haute Couture and Eating Disorders

Eating disorders kill. I think there are a lot of people out there who have an eating disorder, but are afraid to talk about. We're bombarded every time we turn around with super-thin models who are air-brushed to perfection, staring back at us from glossy magazines; the fashion industry definitely has a lot to answer for, don't you think? Please read the following article: http://www.progressiveu.org/020841-haute-couture-and-eating-disorders Then, read the statistics at this site: http://www.anred.com/stats.html Eating disorders are serious business. But pro-ana (pro-anorexia) and pro-mia (pro-bulimia) sites are springing up all over the internet, glamorizing what really is a deadly disease. Do you have an eating disorder? Do you know someone who does, or who might? If you're not sure, you can go check out the website below and see if any of the criteria fit: http://www.angelfire.com/il2/figskating/issues/edsymptoms.html
