Our Culture of Weighting Scales
No more than in our age do we see the proliferation of advertising materials that begs the person to be thinner that what they are at present. A baby fat on a woman’s body is a piece of shame.
Pharmaceuticals have cashed in to this image. It has made a milking cow out of those who wants to be sexy. The emphasis is on getting lesser fats on the body. The focus has moved away from staying healthy.
This kind of culture is the breading ground of eating disorder. Our age no longer have much famine but we see so many people dying of starvation. It is a starvation due to the refusal to eat for fear of getting fat.
