More on pro-anorexia websites

I blogged earlier about pro-anorexia and pro-bulimia websites. Today I also found an interesting article in TIME Magazine: Anorexia Goes High Tech:

Developing an eating disorder is no easy task. Becoming an anorexic, for example, requires months, even years, of obsessive, destructive tunnel vision. [...] and it can be extraordinarily lonely.

Thatís where technology comes in. Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, anorexics and would-be anorexics around the globe can access more than 400 web sites designed solely for them.[...]

The article describes honorable action by Yahoo, removing pro-ana sites from their servers, but (my opinion) does the mistake of linking to several pro-anorectic sites online, which will no doubt make this information even more available to people (among other ways, by increasing Google "PageRank" and by direct clickthroughs).

I am a student at a college somewhere in the USA. I have a classmate (seriously, this isn't me asking for this) who is trying to find out more about pro-anna and pro-bulimia websites.

If you have any for me- please please contact me and let me know at michiru_9903@yahoo.com

Thanks!

A student in need

I really want to have a NICE body, would anyone place some tips on how i can be way WAY skinnier. Like what kind of foods dont really hurt coming back up?? Help me please! Its kinda ironic becasue i am doing a research project on anorexia and bulimia, and i have a hard time finding bad points!!!

Posted by: sarah on March 11, 2003 10:41 PM

Hey everybody,
I just want to say that I'm with you all with you trying to lose weight. I've been eating 1,000 calories a day for the past year and I've lost 17 lbs. I know that that may not sound too anorexic, and I don't think that I am. I have become to stressed out with having to count calories everyday, but whenever I don't, I get so worried that I'll gain weight. Someone please help. My parents say that I should eat more, but then they call me fat. I can't eat with anyone watching me. I have to eat alone, or I don't eat. Do I have an eating problem?

Posted by: Kathy on March 12, 2003 01:41 AM

For those people who are comeing here and telling people who are asking for anorexia or bulimia tips that they're sick idiots, please stop. These are serious diseases and speaking from experiance saying mean things about it and treating it like somehting you can just stop doing at any time really doesn't help. In fact it can make things worse. So please don't come on here and try to preach in an ignorant or cruel way.
