Observing and Preventing the Effects of Extreme Anorexia


Anorexia is one of the most deadly psychological illnesses that people can get, particularly in the most extreme cases. This video manages to effortlessly convey the horrors of anorexia, while also giving people a glimpse of why some people become anorexic in the first place. The woman portrayed in this video weighs four stone and is shockingly thin.

She demonstrates a strong desire to recover and raise awareness about the effects of anorexia and hopes that her story may be helpful to people who have the disease and people who are at risk for the disease. Horrifyingly enough, she also is bombarded with e-mails from people who actively want to have her condition. Some of these e-mails may be deliberately provocative, but some of them are real. These e-mails are a product of a culture that values thinness too much. This is the sort of Facebook video that might help a lot of people in one way or another.
