MEDICALDAILY - Sep 24 - Is the media to blame for eating disorders? A recent poll given by the dating app Meetville revealed that 59% of respondents believed that the media influence on anorexia is largely exaggerated. The poll had 31,425 respondents. Kevin Fleming, a doctor who works with eating disorder clients agrees. "I think media is hugely related to a lot of this, but if your brain is balanced you stand a better chance to cope with triggers."
