Pro Anorexic Websites Putting Youths at Risk

I was interviewed on TV9 News today.

Promo on the TV9 website:

For a number of years “Thinspiration” or known as pro-anorexic websites have led countless teenagers to eating disorders. 90% of the victims are females and most are teenage girls.

The creators of these blogs are unknown but one thing for sure, is that people must stay away from them.

Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist Charles Fishman states the number one help for these victims is their family.

He also suggests help from schools and GP and friends whom can all show support and help to the victims.
