doing something just because, everyone else in your neighborhood or group does it. has always been, the wrong reason for doing anything.

if you ain't doing it, because you love G-D here and now, in TheTorah. then you should expect, all kinds of, doing it without question corruption to eventually creep in.

eating disorders is not only an issue to the orthodox jews but it's a like a plague to the youngsters as well like my 2nd child, she's 15 now, she is not experiencing any eating disorder yet but she is somewhat showing signs of it. peer pressure can be the number 1 cause why my daughter tends to think of dieting and that will lead to any eating disorder sooner, that i would never want to happen. as early as today i always let her take supplements for her overall wellness and to discipline her with the behavior of being too much concern with her physical appearance.
