This will link on to the problems this can lead onto such as extreme fixations and obsessions and in some cases extreme mental and physical health problems such as anorexia.

The story line is going to be informative and relevant to attract young people to want to read it and keep them interested throughout the whole article. A harsh approach will be taken in this article to back up the informative and seriousness of the article. Media students would be interested in this as it is relevant to the subjects they are studying and is a topic of interest.
