The Relationship between Media Consumption and Eating Disorders.
Harrison, Kristen; Cantor, Joanne
Journal of Communication, v47 n1 p40-67 Win 1997
Shows that, for women, the use of thinness-depicting and thinness-promoting (TDP) media predicted disordered-eating symptomatology, drive for thinness, body dissatisfaction, and ineffectiveness. Shows that TDP media use predicted men's endorsement of personal thinness and dieting and select attitudes in favor of thinness and dieting for women. Finds magazine reading a more consistent predictor than television viewing. (SR)
