I was doing some research for school when I fell across this article:

http://www.cbc.ca/story/science/national/2004/05/10/girls_diet040510.html

It basically says how the prominence of the fight against obesity in the media is putting younger girls at risk for disordered thinking and eating. I always thought of this prominence as a good thing, a way to nail some healthy ideas into overweight/obese peoples' heads. But at the same time, I don't want 12 year old, healthy weight girls to feel they have to diet... Anyone else feel that some of these subjects should be censored from them for this reason?

Article under cut. Sorry for the late edit.Collapse )
