Based on reading # 8 “Media Health Hazards? Beauty Image, Obesity, and Eating Disorders” in Connecting Social Problems and Popular Culture, can popular culture make people obese or anorexic? Do you agree or disagree with the author’s argument? Is there a theory/concept (or causes) that helps explain why the issue is seen as problematic? Please make sure to relate your analysis to the symbolic interactionist perspective (and feel free to include lecture notes).
*Including, at least, one short direct quote and mentioning specific concepts make your argument conclusive.
Ive included the chapters this discussion is based on.
