Peers encourage the spread of anorexia

A socially spread disorder called anorexia seems to be further widespread in nations like France where the females are much thinner than the average, as per a recent study from London’s Educational Institute of Economics and Political Science.  By means of a sample of about 3000 young females, an economic analysis was conducted all across Europe which concluded that the group pressure of peer is one such major imperative influence on the growth of anorexia and self image and occurred just like winter/autumn seasons are winding up with the Fashion Week at Paris.

A research which was led by an economist of LSE, Dr. Joan Costa Font along with a Professor from Bonet of City University, proved that it has become increasingly noticeable that the principles of the physical personality are imperative and influential motivators of individual behavior, particularly concerning the food and the health. They discovered the proofs that the communal pressure, through peer group, is determinant in justifying unclear self perception and anorexia nervosa of one’s own body, says Costa Font. The researchers of LSE observed the impact of peer pressure on nearly 2871 women amid the ages of 15-34 who reported their height, age, weight, eating habits, marital status, gender, professional category, academic levels, political views and most important their own view of their body image.

The unclear self perception of females facing food disorders and the significance or the peer pressure might encourage governments to take some step to pressure the role models and balance for communal pressure on females motivating the trade off amid the perfect health and weight. The team of researchers determined which females in the research were anorexic by measuring their BMI. The conclusions endorsed the intervention of the government to compensate for communal pressure on females.
