Models must be very thin to get work. Modeling agencies tell models to be size zero or they will not get jobs. A study looked at the link between eating disorders among models and pressure from modeling agencies. We now know that eating disorders are a big problem in the fashion world.

Researchers found that 81% of models were underweight. They missed meals, used diet pills and made themselves throw up. Over half said their agency would not give them work without losing weight. Eating disorders lead to problems like heart damage, weak bones and even death. Sadly, many teenagers copy the models.
