Hi,

My name is Juliana, from Sydney.

I would like to know "what is your opinion and point of view towards eating disorders and the media?" Also, is there any organizations or groups that I can contact to regarding my queries. Thank you for your time and attention


   

Juliana --

there are a few people who have done research specifically on the affect the media has on eating disorders, including a pretty famous study that the Harvard Center for Eating Disorders (I think that's the correct name) undertook in Fiji, following the introduction of TV there.

You should also consult the work of Susan Bordo, Jean Killbourne and Jennifer Schimmer (I think that's her name). And the Renfrew Center, based in Philadelphia.

Good luck,

--Amy
