First off, This is a Health Ad made by Giancarlo Alvarez. This is intended as a PSA project.
Secondly, this was intended for teenagers and young adults. The campaign for the most part is aimed solely on this demographic. It uses a fear tactic to grab and hold attention.
That being said, I understand FULLY, that the media is not the only reason for Anorexia. Media is not the only reason why people turn to anorexia. HOWEVER it is a major reason. Agruing otherwise is ignorant, and uneducated. Comment freely but remember there are people seeking help for their disorder, and frankly comments such as "do your research" or "you dont know anything" or comments along those lines are uncalled for. You are entitled to your opinion, but this is one of those times your opinion may negatively influence those in need of help. SO ONCE AGAIN, media is not the only cause. This video focuses on it being one of the major causes. On a side note, Part 2 is back with audio.
Lastly, Thank you to those individuals who have contacted me about this video helping them and educating them through their issues. And for those who are angry about the video, good, I'm glad it makes you mad, because for every 20 ignorant comments I get on this, I get 1 personal message from someone seeking the help they need. And those 20 people being angry is well worth saving someone's life.
