Record numbers of anorexia sufferers – some aged just nine – are being admitted to hospital, according to shocking figures.
Every night, 350 hospital beds across England on average are taken up by a patient desperately ill with anorexia, bulimia or another eating disorder. The figures have doubled in a decade.
Last year, 15 children aged only between five and nine were admitted to hospital with eating disorders, underlining fears that unhealthy obsessions with food are developing very early.
There is also growing concern that the NHS is worsening the crisis by refusing to treat patients because they are not deemed thin enough.
Many clinics turn patients away until they fall below a certain body weight. One young woman told this when she appealed for help condemned it as a ‘perverse incentive’ to lose weight.
The figures come after the NHS was heavily criticised in a report by the Patients Association. It revealed how a gifted 19-year-old died following failings by GPs, hospital doctors and psychologists.

Curves are just fine.... its pretty messed up how things have become.

And bodies need to grow and mature at those ages, denying oneself nutrients can result in more issues later on as well as in the moment.

Teach sick trends to kids and look what happens. They're all fucked up in the head. :(

It all stems from the awful insidious messages that are constantly being portrayed to youngsters by the media that 'thin is beauty'....that being thin is all-important.

Not good. :(

Funny thing is, I have always found the more curvy girl be much prettier... And I'm not alone with this. Then there's some jerks who go after the skeleton thin women. Crazy shit. Media is much to blame on this one. But trends come and go, I wonder when this trend will be over.

No you are not alone with it......I too find a woman with curves prettier.

I think the majority of men do.

^This!^

I really don't get these guys who go after the skeletons... And I really don't understand how women of today are so desperate to go on the brink of life and death just to "look good." :(
