How do images in magazines effect society?

Girls see all those thin models in the magazines wearing cute,

expensive clothes and looking happy. After seeing these repeatedly,

they are, in a way, "brainwashed" into thinking that is what they

should look like. So they try to lose some weight and consider

themselves fat. The thing with eating disorders is that no matter

how much weight they lose, they want to lose more. It is possible

to die from this. I would like to note that not everyone is

affected by these pictures and develops a negative self-esteem

causing an eating disorders. However, it is an increasing

occurance.
