Anorexic Brazilian Model Dies

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on January 24, 2009

dona6Ana Carolina Reston, a 21-year-old model from Brazil passed away due to her serious case on anorexia. She weighed only 88 pounds and has died of generalized infection.

This know model used to travel abroad for her modeling career, she had been to China, Turkey, Mexico and Japan for several modeling agencies. She died on November 14 in Sao Paulo. The hospital said the infection that killed the 5-foot-8-inch model was caused by anorexia nervosa, a disorder characterized by an abnormal fear of becoming obese, an aversion to food and severe weight loss.

Her mother has advised every mother to take care of their children because their loss is irreparable. No matter how much money you have if it’s time for you to die you will really die.

Reston began her modeling career at the age of 13 after winning a local beauty contest in her hometown of Jundiai, on the outskirts of Sao Paulo.

“I noticed something was wrong when she returned from Japan,” Miriam told the Estado de Sao Paulo newspaper. “She was too thin when she returned and when I told her to eat something, she would say: ‘Mom please don’t fight with me; there is nothing wrong with me, I’m fine.’ “

The worst thing is that the world of fashion encourages each aspiring model to emulate rail-thin models that people will get attracted with them and that they will be popular in the eyes of everybody.
Where is the moral value to such a statement from the fashionable individuals?
