she's been thin, she's been fat. hear what this anorexic has to say about body p


when we try and think of body shaming, we usually picture an overweight person being called names or facing flak over being “lazy”. lately, we have witnessed a motion against this bullying as people with “undesirable” body-types have displayed love towards the person in the mirror. yet, we tend to ignore how body shaming continues for people with skinny bodies. a self-proclaimed ed (eating disorder) warrior, megan jayne crabbe, has set out to balance out the prevailing notions pertaining to a “normal” body. an anorexia survivor herself, megan challenges the common misconceptions- being thin isn’t always good and being fat is okay too.megan was diagnosed as an anorexic when she was 14. “you see, within 5 years of being on the planet, it was already ingrained in my mind that fat was the wors

why salmonella doesn’t want you to out


salmonella bacteria don’t want your body to starve on their account. the microbes’ motives, though, are (probably) purely -related.the body sometimes sacrifices appetite to fight off infection: less energy for the host also means less energy for the pathogen. understanding how bacteria cope with this tactic can inform treatments.when it reaches the gut, salmonella enterica bacteria can trigger this type of anorexic response in their host, making it a good model for how microbes deal with less food. researchers at the salk institute in california investigated salmonella fallout in mice. in lab tests, they found that the bacteria aren't as virulent when a mouse isn’t eating, and they use the vagus nerve, a superhighway connecting gut to brain, to encourage eating. the bacteria make a protein

diversity progress in fashion is a step forward but there's no time to be compla


niklas halle'n via getty images diversity in fashion, on the catwalk or in advertising, has been an issue for a while. members of the body positivity movement have worked hard to raise much needed awareness of the lack of models in the industry who reflect society as it is today with all its different shapes, sizes, skin tones, ages, genders, ethnicities and disabilities. the campaign to see more real people has certainly picked up momentum and this year's london fashion week seems to have finally got the message. or so it seems. it's no secret that we urgently need greater diversity in the fashion industry with our nation being on the brink of a body image crisis. only 40% of people like the way they look and almost a third of young people in school don't want to take part in a...

bedroom talk: the weight of our words


all that we seem to hear about is the negative impact of the media upon women and s' body image. yes, that vague conceptual monster, "the media" is making us insecure, is making us feel fat, and is putting forwards unrealistic ideals towards which women are supposed to aspire. these sentiments are undoubtedly true, but they also seem to neglect the far-reaching echoes of body perfectionism which are glossed onto the words of men and boys everywhere, clinging like a sticky syrup which, once stuck, cannot too easily be s ed off. at a macro level, the media is painstakingly pushing an obsession with women's bodies. whilst the mainstream media may continue to value thin, perfected female bodies, strong backlash to these ideals has become an equally forceful and unavoidable part of the rhetoric

anorexia: a letter from my body


i have been told to write a letter from my body to myself as part of my treatment from anorexia, so i thought sharing it publicly may help.trigger warningdear habiba,i wish this was a positive letter but i'm afraid it isn't. i'm going to have to be blunt with you. you made most of my 23 years of life a misery. you denied me food, the most important source of energy. you made me sit through hunger pangs for hours, even days. i was begging for you to feed me. even a sip of water would be enough at times but you denied me of that too, leading me to suffer severe dehydration which destroyed my kidneys.you made my hair fall out and made my nails become brittle. you made me work through the pain, even though i couldn't concentrate properly. you made me fake a smile, pretending everything is alri

evgenyatamanenko via getty images i am a breastfeeder.  i fed my first daughter for nearly 11 months and i'm currently feeding my second daughter who is nearly eight months.  i have always breastfed on demand, as and when required.  whether i'm in a restaurant, a shop or the theatre, i've simply fed my baby because she's hungry and needs feeding.generally my feeding so publicly and without shame has been met with positivity, or for the most part not been noticed.  until now.there is a misconception amongst those who argue vehemently against public feeding that breastfeeding involves some dramatic wafting of a bare breast with milk spraying.  in reality, in my own case and the case of breastfeeders i have been around, it would be easy not to know the baby is having a feed...

facebook is reportedly building a streaming tv app


although the report is short on specifics for the new app, the journal notes that it would prioritize video content rather than simply act as a big-screen portal into your news feed. facebook is also reportedly in talks with media companies to license a variety of long-form, tv-style content ranging from scripted shows to sports and entertainment. naturally, the app would be a platform to distribute this new content alongside tv-style advertisements that can fetch a higher asking price than display ads on the news feed.it's currently unclear how user generated video will factor in to the tv platform, but according to the journal's sources, a facebook tv app has been in development in some form or another for years. the latest incarnation got a boost when facebook execs renewed their video
