Stacie Marie Riley's insight:

This picture makes you wonder how many toy companies are giving young girls the idea of what is beautiful. "Well if she's boney and she's a beautiful doll, I can be too!"

Promoting anorexia can be one of the worst things to do. It inspires people to become skinnier than they should be.

Recovering patients describe their battles with an "anorexia voice"

Recovering patients describe their battles with an "anorexia voice" | Eating Disorders | Scoop.it

People with anorexia find comfort in their illness at first, but then it becomes over-powering and they end up battling for control of their own minds. That's according to Sarah Williams and Marie Reid, who conducted an online focus group and email interviews with 14 people recovering from anorexia nervosa, aged 21 to 50 and including two men.

Stacie Marie Riley's insight:

These interviews with people struggling with an eating disorder helps others relate and know that they are not alone. It becomes a way out and a coping mechanism for the bottled up feelings. This is a good source because it gives real life information and not bias information.

Kesha looks healthy after rehab for eating disorders anorexia and bulimia
Examiner.com
Singer Kesha looked healthy and happy in her first red-carpet appearance since completing a two-month stint in rehab for anorexia and bulimia.
Stacie Marie Riley's insight:

This source gives information regarding singer/songwriter, Kesha, and her two month stay in rehab for Anorexia and Bulimia. Her mother begins rumors about Kesha's producer bullying her for her weight gain, being the reason she started her long road with eating disorders. I think this source is extremely useful to get that point across that eating disorders are widespread and people are not alone, even celebrities suffer from them.

Stacie Marie Riley's insight:

These images provide horrifying information to those who suffer with anorexia. Rather than being told about the harm eating disorders, it shows through gruesome pictures that make the person question why they would ever want to end up like that.

There's nothing wrong with wanting and trying to be healthy. As a matter of fact, more people should strive for it.
Stacie Marie Riley's insight:

This source shares information the average person may or may not know about a "hidden" eating called Orthorexia, the abnormal obsession with what foods are most healthy for the body, not particularly  concerned about weight gain.
I find this source extremely informational and useful. Our eyes are opened up to more eating disorders that we may not have known about.

Stacie Marie Riley's insight:

This Youtube clip is about a recovering binge eater, trying to give some tips and insight on how to deal with the disorder and how to reach out. I'm not so sure this source would be very useful when conducting an annotated bibliography because of her own information she uses. She has no sources or details of where her information came from in the first place. Nina says "10 million people suffer from eating disorders..." and failed to explain where she heard or read that from. It could be perceived as false and most would be skeptical.
