Super-skinny supermodels are under fire for inspiring preteens to have poor body images!

Health officials are becoming increasingly concerned as eating disorders are being treated for children as young as six-years-old! 

In a study by University College London’s Institute of Child Health, 208 cases of ‘early onset’ eating disorders were recorded in preteens during a 14-month window, the Daily Mail reports.

Doctors involved with the study are calling for ‘urgent action’ in order to spot the disorders in kids and draw attention to the problem, and are hoping these numbers can act as the baseline for future studies in order to see if the trend rises with the infiltration of too-thin celebs.

It’s more important than ever for the fashion industry to be aware of the fact that super-skinny models can negatively-impact kids!
