Anorexia and bulimia are two similar and related eating disorders. They are addictive diseases and they are often neglected by the society. Anorexia and bulimia are both a psychological and a physical problem, which is really a severe disease. This is why there’s many foundation and association against those eating disorders. Since 2002, Dove found the Dove Movement for Self-Esteem; it helps young women to build their self-esteem to prevent any eating disorders. They want young women to be able to accept themselves and be confident in their skin, but they also want older women to build their self-esteem and transmit this confidence to their daughter and finally stop decrease severely anorexia and bulimia. Dove creates a section in its website to learn about the consequences and there is a series of tips to learn how to build self-esteem. Dove has a bigger and more powerful impact in the society, because they sell beauty product and this is why they helped more than eleven millions young women in the world and they expect to help more in the near future. Also, there is an association called BANA, stands for Bulimia Anorexia Nervosa Association, in Windsor, Ontario. It is a non-profit organization, part of the Local Health Integration Network funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. They are specialized in the treatment of eating disorders and they promote health. They offer clinical services such as individual services but also familial services to help someone in your family. I think it is important to be aware of the services that we can have so we can stop this social issue. For sure, the ideal is to do like Israel and vote for a law against anorexia and bulimia. In their country they can’t show in any publicity of someone with an eating disorder, if they do they can have a ticket or they can be carry to court by the family or the person that is concerned.
