Access from EThOS:
It is suggested that the media is a contributing factor to the obsession with the perfect body in Western society, and the associated rise in eating disorders. One of the key features of the eating disorders anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa is a disturbance in body size and shape. Researchers disagree on how this can be quantified. Previous methods have only produced a percentage over or underestimation of body size, rather than a representative image.
