Articles about eating disorders and alcoholism are about health. Therefore, they should probably be filed in your “Health” section — not in Fashion & Style. According to your own article:
Dr. Bunnell, the past president of the National Eating Disorders Association, said the obsession with being skinny and the social acceptance of drinking and using drugs — along with the sense, lately, that among celebrities, checking into rehab is almost a given, if not downright chic — are partly to blame.
“Both disorders are behaviors that are glorified and reinforced,” Dr. Bunnell said. “Binge drinking is almost cool and hip, and losing weight and being thin is a cultural imperative for young women in America. Mixing both is not surprising, and it has reached a tipping point in terms of public awareness.”
When you put important health pieces in Fashion & Style just because they’re about girly-diseases, you are part of the problem.
