I know that Anorexia is a disease and is more than just not eating, it is low self-esteem, distorted negative body image, relentless untruthful photoshopped advertising, peer pressure all rolled into one.
And the face of Anorexia is a brave 27 year old French woman Isabelle Caro who had been anorexic since 13. She is now 68 lbs (31kg) in pictures taken by Italian photographer Oliviero Toscani of the controversal benetton ads fame, for Italian Designer Nolita.
The pictures are up on billboard and newspaper advertisements during Milan Fashion Week.
