The Image Manipulation of celebrities on young adults Its almost everywhere you look Pictures of emaciated young women are rampant on magazine covers advertisements billboards everywhere It is quite evident by flipping through a magazine or just glancing at the advertisements on television what the media considers as the ideal figure This perception has been created in a large part by images put forth by movie stars and models The fact that the media is so influential in our society and we idealize the lives of people in the limelight plays a major part in our countrys obsession with thinness and extreme dieting North Americas obsession with health diets the fashion industry and television exhibiting waif thin models and actresses as sexy and voluptuous gives a distorted notion sending many young women the wrong idea about body image In todays society eating problems such as anorexia and bulimia are becoming all too common Yet the question still remains what are the causes and factors contributing to this destructive behaviour and how is the media contributing to these problems The fashion industry television movies and societys norms have all promoted not only a distorted perspective of what a beautiful person is defined as but influenced many to deception therefore leaving many young women with an eating disorder Looking at the television one can easily notice all of the ads and diet commercials claiming to have to newest and hottest diet With these ads and societys norms many are led to believe once the weight is lost they will be happy Surely everyone has noticed the magazines while standing in line at the grocery store Without a doubt dieting has become an insane obsession in North America Billions of dollars are spent trying to look the way society tells us we need to look People go to extremes from starving themselves to paying for various cosmetic surgeries It is very unusual
