Are we suffering from a societal eating disorder?

Why? is an independent school production I finished in summer 2013. There is often a very delicate balance between "healthy" eating habits and eating disorders. We are taught, partly by the media, that there is a certain way we must look and weigh to be accepted. This, in itself, isn't very healthy.
