More and more boys have eating problems, and doctors say social media is partly responsible

In our previous article , we discussed how social media causes body anxiety for teenagers, and cited many examples of girls.

The Wall Street Journal pointed out in a recent report that more and more boys are being pushed into the predicament of eating disorders by social media.

Doctors and academics have found that many recommended fitness content on social media points to eating disorders. Boys often over-exercise and excessively narrow their diet. In extreme cases, this can lead to muscle loss and cause serious health problems related to low heart rate and blood pressure.

Some doctors said that the latest wave of eating disorders can be traced to the trend of "quarantine fit" on the Internet. In a children's hospital in Kansas City, the proportion of male patients with eating disorders before the epidemic was 1%-2%, and now it has risen to 6%.

Eating disorders in boys are often more difficult to detect, because most people feel that girls are more susceptible to body anxiety. Moreover, there are many content on social media to teach them how to hide food and hide the reality of their vomiting, so that their parents will not find out.

A boy who had experienced an eating disorder, after he was admitted to the hospital and started psychological counseling, still wanted to use Instagram to watch sports, photography, and space. It took him four full months to stop the Instagram algorithm from tweeting him on fitness and nutrition.
