The media's obsession with painfully thin fashion models has contributed to the growth in eating disorders among young girls, according to the British Medical Association.
A report by the association identifies a link between the images of "abnormally thin" models which dominate TV and magazines and the rise in conditions such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia. There are an estimated 60,000 people in Britain with eating disorders. Nine out of ten are female. The report calls for urgent action to reduce the pressure on young women to be thin, asking publishers in particular to be more responsible. The association asks for "more realistic body shapes" to be featured in a bid to cut the number of women dying from the so-called "slimming" diseases.
Schools are also encouraged to stamp out teasing of overweight pupils and to encourage them to take part in sport. Dr Vivienne Nathason, BMA head of science, said: "The image of slim models in the media is a marked contrast to the body size and shape of most children and young women who are becoming increasingly heavier."
Women's magazines have been under attack for years, accused of promoting unrealistic body images of exceptionally thin models. Editor of Vogue, Alexandra Schulman, defended her publication's position: "All we are doing is showing images of women we regard as interesting or beautiful or fashionable. But we are not actually saying you have to be like this".
