(Edmonds, WA) February 20, 2014 – Eating Disorder expert Dr. Gregg Jantz, author of 28 books, including his best-seller “Hope, Help and Healing for Eating Disorders”, correlates the early onset of body dysmorphia and self-image problems with the sexualization of young girls in our society.

“The projections of beauty, sexuality and self-worth set by today’s media culture often create disturbing impressions and unhealthy expectations on today’s children,” Dr. Jantz says. “We have seem a dramatic increase in the sexualization of young girls as a leading contributor of disordered eating, and it is an issue that we are spending more and more time addressing. As we prepare for National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, it is paramount that we address not only the treatment and symptoms of eating disorders, but the causes as well. ”

Dr. Jantz is a go-to media source for a range of disordered eating afflictions. He is available for immediate media events and appearances on this subject.

Dr. Jantz has appeared on CNN, FOX, ABC and CBS, and has been interviewed for the New York Post, the Associated Press, Family Circle, and Women’s Day and writes blogs for The Huffington Post and Psychology Today. See Dr. Jantz’s biography at www.drgregoryjantz.com.
