Adolescence, v37 n145 p1-18 Spr 2002
This study examined the relationship between reading women's fashion magazines and the use of pathogenic dieting methods among 502 high school females. Reading these magazines does influence a female's decision to restrict calories or take diet pills. Further research is needed to examine factors that are antecedent to reading the magazines to further clarify the role of the media. (JDM)
