Anorexia Nervosa is an eating disorder.
In this age of social media and information, we are constantly bombarded with various stimuli that significantly influence our perceptions of "Beauty" and "Self - Image".

However, there is still a huge difference between thinness and emaciation, and although media can have negative influences on social behaviour, it is not the reason why so many men and women develop an eating disorder.
