WIN Wyoming

Thought Bullets
November 1999

Several WIN Wyoming members sent me an article a few months ago by Ellen Goodman of the Washington Post Writers Group. The article appeared in the Casper Star Tribune on June 1, 1999. Goodman’s article highlighted research completed by Anne Becker, an anthropologist and psychiatrist, who directs research at the Harvard Eating Disorders Center.

The article describes the marked difference in body image perceptions on the South Pacific Island of Fiji before and after the arrival of television to the island in 1995.
