Dave:  Taylor, Lindsay Lohan was just in, in the hospital for some eating disorder, right?

Taylor:  Right. I believe it was bulimia, which is when you, ah, throw up the food that you eat in order to retain that lovely figure.

Dave:  Oh, that’s nasty.

Taylor:  Yes. Disgusting.

Dave:  But, yeah, she lost a lot of weight since her, ah, appearance as a celebrity a few years ago.

Taylor:  Mm hmm.

Dave:  Didn’t she come out on, on some awards show and she just looked emaciated.

Taylor:  It seems to, you know, happen a lot with the young these days…

Dave:  Yeah.

Taylor:  ...and they have this body image that they imagine they’re supposed to set to, especially if they’re being looked at by millions…

Dave:  Oh yeah.

Taylor:  ...and millions of people.

Dave:  So, you were just telling me that she was in the hospital for bulimia and she also admitted to a drug problem?

Taylor:  Right, which she has not disclosed which drugs.

Dave:  A lot of celebrities, they get hooked on, ah, some form of speed, you know, because they’re touring so much and, just, they need to stay awake. So, different than, you know, serious drugs like heroin or crack cocaine.

Taylor:  Right. Not likely. More than likely, diet pills.

Dave:  Right. Which can be bad, if you take too much, right?

Taylor:  Certainly. Everything is bad. Everything’s best in moderation.

Dave:  That’s what they say.

討論

Eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia are becoming more and more common. The number of people in the U.S. suffering from these eating disorders has doubled since the 1960s. These disorders affect both men and women, though they are more common among young women.

Excessive dieting and worrying about your body image is becoming a problem all around the world. More people die from eating disorders than from any other mental illness.

Verry interesting storry!. Big number of superstars are suffring from eating desorder, I always hear tis kind of stories on TV, it actually become verry common, body image is the primordial thing that a superstar can think about!, they are ready to do anything and sacrificing their health just to look amazing even if they are aware of what can eating desorder engender with time. In addition, to be able to handle perfectly their hard works, they usually turn to drugs whch can destroy their lives such what happened to elvis presley. I recently watched a news coverage discussing a member of backstreetboys drugs addicting situation, the disaster he had to support and then to get over it was huge, but finaly he recovred because he decided to stop drugs at the right time.
