Eating disorders are the deadliest mental illness. They are caused by people who think they are too fat.
Probably because of images like this one
20% of people who suffer from anorexia die early in life because of their eating disorder. It causes suicide and heart disease.

If Barbie were human,
she would have to walk

Men and boys abuse steroids for athletic performance, bigger muscles, and strength.
About 5% of middle school and high school students have used antibiotic steroids to put on muscle. -Fox News says according to a study in Minnesota
Seven million women and girls and one million men and boys suffer from an eating disorder in the US.
