Body image issues lead to depression, drug use in teen boys: study

Body image issues lead to depression, drug use in teen boys: study | Semester 2 | Scoop.it
Eating disorders are most often associated with young women, but a new study suggests young men can also become obsessed with their appearance and go to extremes to enhance their bodies.
Kelsey Cresswell's insight:

The website states that "Eating disorders are most often associated with girls, but adolescent boys and young men also develop body image issues - with effects ranging from drug and supplement use to binge drinking, write researchers in the journal JAMA Pediatrics". Body images is a big issue in our society today and effects everyone either a lot or a little.

Kelsey Cresswell's insight:

Body image is something that affects the majority of our world today. Everyone wants to fit in and be what society wants them to be however this ad has shifted the public opion causing a lot of debate. The Dove skincare brand's campaign had the stated aim of encouraging women to feel more confident about their bodies. Instead of having women all of the same shape they had a photo shoot taken with women of different variations of shapes. This campaign is something that we need more of in our society.

The Honest Coca-Cola Obesity Commercial

Kelsey Cresswell's insight:

This commercial is very interesting. Everyone has always been told that coke is fun, coke is good, however this commercial is the complete opposite. This commercial tells people the truth about it all. How it is leading to obesity one of the biggest lifestyle diseases and how it plays a part in other health problems. I recommend watching it because it will show you a different side of the products we all love.
