Social Causes Of Anorexia
Why The Discussion
It is important to
discuss social causes of anorexia.
Reason? It has greatly
added to the alarming increase in the
number of anorexics.
The social pressure
affects the young and the old.My 14-Year Old And Anorexia
My 14 year old daughter came home from school and wouldn’t eat.
Initially, I thought she was tired and would handle eating later.
Later, she said because she was involved in
some gymnastics dances in school,
she had to shed 10 whopping Kilos!!!
Was I alarmed!!!
I kept my shock mixed with anger in check and tried to find out why.
A part of the dance
involved what they termed Wolf Wall.
In it, they build up
circles of humans standing on the shoulders of those beneath.
Finally, she would stand
alone atop the whole team.
She, as well as all
others who would be carried, had to shed weight!!!
Each according to his or her own level.
And the bad one now…
The weight has to go fast, within 7days!!!Skip Meals To Win Prize?
The fastest way to achieve that is to skip meals or eat very little.
Trust me to put my foot down after hearing all the reasons.
I said 'Nope' to all that.
She wasn’t at all over weight.
So, why subject her to unnecessary weight loss
and possible introduction to anorexia
in order to participate in a school dance and competition?
Tell them, "Mom, says 'No.'"
She still did the dance, and her team took first position.
Social causes of anorexia? You have seen one.The Media Push For Skinny Body
The media is one of the
social causes of anorexia.
They project models as
perfect, beautiful and preferred.
These models look so thin,
actually skeleton, they look sick.
And to think some of them
use drugs to achieve the skeleton looks
while eating little or nothing, is absurd!
Their energy level is pretty low.Pro-Anorexia Groups
The pro-anorexia groups all over the net
are not helping matters either.
They project ideas to thin out as the next best thing you must imbibe
to be trendy and acceptable.
I even saw a site where they outlined
the 'Ten Commandments Of Anorexia.'
They contain things you do and must not do to keep anorexic.
Toying with death and smiling!!!!!
Magazines and television have more than enough contribution
to the anorexia that's ravaging many.
How to put a stop to this trend is still not clear.
But websites like this and individuals are becoming aware
of the dangers of anorexia and other eating disorders
and are resisting the media pull.
