Media, celebrities and eating disorders

Do you think the media, and even celebrities, play any role in the increased prevalence of eating disorders and body image disturbance? Please explain your answer.
Give specific examples of advertisements (or celebrities behavior) that promote unhealthy lifestyle (as related to unhealthy eating and/or body image disturbance), and also of ones that promote healthy eating and styles of living.
Finally, why do you think such messages have effect on some people’s health behaviors, while others are not influenced at all with such messages?
As with all CTs, you must include minimum of one relevant quote from the textbook, and explain the relevancy of the quote you have chosen.
