Dieting view is not ideal
Published 07/02/2010 | 13:46
Sir -- I am writing in relation to the article 'Don't hate me because I'm thin' (Life, Jan. 24, 2010).
I believe that Ms Horan's views on body image and the manner in which they are expressed in the piece are likely to promote unhealthy and harmful attitudes towards eating and dieting. While I believe that Ms Horan is entitled to her opinion, I believe the manner in which it is expressed is irresponsible and harmful. The publication of this article promotes a potentially unhealthy and dangerous ideal.
