An appropriate estimate of how many suffering Americans that go through eating disorders is 8 million. This disease primarily affects women with the ages of 18-25. Not only has this affected females, but also adolescent males. Studies from the Journal of Communication found that high school girls as young as 13 are effected by thin models and celebrities through the media.

Interesting story, Facebook and other media could definitely trigger disordered body image but I think there has to be underlying issues there first.

In many studies, researchers conclude that women's and men's perceptions of their bodies differ. According to the National Eating Disorders Association, the weight loss industry earns $40 billion on dieting related products each year, where most of this problem occurs and leads to the tendency to look for a "quick fix".
