Eating disorders and Hollywood–the two really do seem to go hand-in-hand, don’t they?  Demi Lovato, popularly known as the “Skyscraper” singer is one of the latest in a long line of starletts to have her eating disorder experience hit the tabloids.  Supposedly, Demi Lovato was so concerned about her weight that she was afraid to drink orange drink, fearing that it would make her fat.  With young girls and teenagers everywhere looking up to the female celebrities as the pinnacle of achievement and beauty, is it any wonder that the incidence of eating disorders in this country is exploding?  Seriously, celebrities need to do themselves and the rest of the world a favor–if  you can’t refrain from having the eating disorder, the least you can do is avoid glamorizing it.
