Too thin to work? Fashion models should be benched

Message  MurielB le Mar 19 Avr - 17:28

models are at risk of eating disorders like anorexia nervosa.
http://www.latimes.com/science/sciencenow/la-sci-sn-fasion-models-too-thin-to-work-20151222-story.html

Anorexia nervosa is a serious, potentially life-threatening eating disorder characterized by self-starvation and excessive weight loss. It is a problem of public health and top models need as much protection as the children who make clothes in harmful conditions or coal miners whose work destroyed the lungs. It's not a trivial problem because Anorexia is the deadliest of all mental illnesses and making big money at the expense of women is unbearable.
Any comment is welcome.

Moreover, skinny top-models are not beautiful; slim women are. Photographer's models are slim, but never skinny. Fashion designers are perhaps not able to design dresses for normal women...

It is a challenge for them in the years to come isn't ?

Hi Muriel, remy,

> coal miners whose work destroyed the lungs
My comment will be that a model can't be compared to coal miners.
Among oodles of other reasons, they don't have the same age and same educational background: a coal miner is usually an adult in charge of a family without much money while a model is young and single and wealthy.
The model has the choice -with her 2 hands and 2 legs and perhaps a brain- to do another job and escape that "calamity"; I don't pity her as it's up to her.

Similarly, I wouldn't say a lady is at high risk when she wears high heels ( http://www.sciencesetavenir.fr/sante/20160108.OBS2431/escarpin-quand-le-pied-prend-trop-de-hauteur-tout-le-corps-en-patit.html )

Hello, everyone ! I'd like to share this link with you :

"Jamais assez maigre" a book written by Victoire Maçon-Dauxerre, an ex-top-model who wants to alert young girls about the dangers of the profession.

Thanks Guilaine for your link. I understand what you mean Gérard but i think that young models should learn how to be sensible and not be attracted by all that glitters.

Muriel, any youngter has to learn whatever the domain: models are not different and I won't pity them.
