Children With Anorexia Caused By Celebs?

marykateanorexic


Children as young as 5 are being treated in hospital for severe anorexia, reports The Daily Mail. 98 children aged between five and seven have been admitted during the last three years because of eating disorders normally associated..

..with teenagers and adults. A further 99 aged eight and nine were admitted over the same period, as were almost 400 aged between ten and 12, and 1,500 between 13 and 15. Nearly 100 children aged five to seven were treating in..

..hospital for eating disorders, showing how early they can be affected by body image. The number of under-nines needing hospital treatment has doubled in the past year. Many girls idolize ultra-slim models and celebrities they see in magazines and on TV and try to slim in the hope they will look similar. Girls in particular often compare themselves to their friends and in some cases will even compete to see who can lose the most weight.

Experts warn that girls are now beginning to compare themselves with ‘size zero’ models and celebrities when they are still at primary school. Nearly half of girls aged under 14 had been on a diet, according to YMCA survey. Girls see the pictures in magazines of extremely thin women and think that is how they should be: ‘That can leave them fearful of puberty, and almost trying to stave it off.’ Nearly one in seven would consider taking slimming pills and..

one in 20 would take laxatives, according to poll of more than 800 girls. Many sufferers of eating disorders hide their problem from family and friends by pretending they have already eaten to avoid meals..

..and wearing baggy clothes to conceal their skeletal shape. Anorexia can be triggered by stressful events such as a death in the family, bullying at school or parents getting divorced.

    Did you even read the article? OU likes to start shit. I think the point of the article, is that kids are looking in magazines and tv and stuff where these models and celebs are photoshopped and airbrushed to make them skinnier. I don’t think ALL of the blame can be put on celebs, but even today, OU retweeted people saying they support miley smoking. Like WTF, that isn’t good. It’s many sides to this.

    i believe this. my little cousin is 7 years old and her mom said she has been barely eating because she thinks she’s fat. its not celebs fault, eating disorders are starting to hit young children for the most different reasons.

    —-

    yes…eating disorders affect the brain. everyone’s eating disorder is different. some people don’t eat because they want control. some people make themselves throw up to make their guilt go away. some people don’t eat because they WANT to be skinny for society. some people don’t eat because they want to be skinny for themselves.

    ..it hurts so much…

    ========================================
    I have had an eating disorder and my parents have taken care of me and it wasnt there fault.mine was due to the fact i put on weight due to my tablets i need to stay alive but a side effect is weight gain.i ended up in hospital countless times risking my life to be skinny.i used to steal relatives diet pills.i also threw up my food but rarley.i used to use laxatives or chew my food and spit it out.i wasnt eating properly and i couldnt concentrate which means im resiting some exams.it was mainly due to girls in school,being called names,and wanting to be attracive,i used to read celeb gossip mags such as ok and heat and they were a massive impact as they made you depressed.i still have those issues today they probely stay with me for life along with self esteem issues.i always wanted to be perfect and i did this to my self so dont blame how my parents brought me up or being idolising celebs.im crying my eyes out wishing people could be supportive and not judge as i doubt you ever been in a situation with you having a eating disorder.it so sad to see how it affects everyone and how children have issues in modern society.

    I am a sorta an nineties kid plus no one trying to balme problems on other things,but they have an impact on others .i think your being ignorent as eating disorders are about much more than being skinny.and theres many different reasons kids develop eating disorders.plus kids are not dumber and dont need to get a life.im not dumb i have an above average IQ- neither are other people who have eating disorders.plus there lifes a struggle.i think your the person whos dumb and needs to get a life.

    @iamruth I am so sorry to hear about your struggles. It’s good to hear that you’re parents had raised you well but at the ages of 5-10 parents should be aware of their kids.

    Better than obesity in America. However, if you lose weight it is better to do it naturally and not by starving yourself. Has the kids not learned anything from Demi?!

    Sadly she does smoke. She seems to be following in the footsteps of her older brother Trace with the tattoos and stuff. :(
    She doesn’t smoke in public though. There’s only a couple of pics of her smoking.

    Eating disorders have nothing to do with celebrities. People choose to envy skinnier celebs as motivation to lose weight. They want to look like them, but they don’t realize how effortless it is for some of them. I have an eating disorder and I’m currently in recovery; it’s an endless battle and sometimes ends in ultimate failure. “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” -Kate Moss. People like her (not narrowing it down to celebrities) are the reason young girls stick their finger down their throat. The stigma society has built makes differently shaped females/males feel inferior when they’re not identical to someone’s definition of perfect. Perfection is unachievable; I still feel the need to be perfect though. I have to remind myself daily I’m perfect as I am. Beautifully imperfect. My heart goes out to anyone dealing with an ED. it’s so hard. It seems impossible. But there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

  • thedarksunshine

    I know a little girl that’s about 8 years old that asked about exercise and dieting and doesn’t want to eat (the times I have seen her) because she’s afraid of getting fat because a couple of girls at her school were bullying her for being chubbier than most girls.. it’s horrible.

When was the last time you saw a girl with a little or a lot of weight on her in a magazine? Demi’s not as curvy as she used to be anymore, so I don’t think she counts.

    no but dont you think celebs know they should be a positive role models.i know magazines need to show curvy ‘normal’ girls without slating them.it sad thats what fed by the media.plus its demi choice but i think she looks better with more weight on her

    This is so true. My heart goes out to these families, truly. But parents should be paying more attention to the fact that they’re kids are becoming unhealthy. They are so young and the parents need to take more responsibility. It should NEVER have to get to the point of hospitalization.
    Gob bless, xo.

    It’s mean to give the celebs the fault of it ..

    That is the saddest thing in the world. A little girl wearing a T-Shirt saying “Nothing Tastes as good as Skinny Feels” unfortunately it is true, lets hope that the Celebrities that got help with their eating disorders will influence these kids.
