Reading some of the comments made me feel sick, people just have no clue about eating disorders which poses the question: why not?
Do you think if people were educated about eating disorders as part of the curriculum/health class it would change the perception of EDs both generally and in the media? Do you think if such classes were available they could prevent someone developing an eating disorder?
EDIT: From what I've gathered from your comments the general consensus is that such classes wouldn't work, because most people just ignore them anyway. In America some schools/states do cover them in health class, but I know that in Britain we don't even have "health class" as such; sex and drugs are as far as they go around here.
Anyway, thank you for your input on this, it was interesting. :)
