The death of a child is always sad. Last week mother Rosalind Ponomarenko-Jones buried her 19 year old daughter who died from anorexia. She said "burying a child is probably the hardest thing any parent has to contemplate."
This news comes in a week when some fashion shows are not following the advice that models should have a body mass index (BMI) over 18. Rosalind pointed out "When I was a child, smoking was seen as glamorous, but now we all know that it kills. It is hardly seen in films and never promoted in other media. I think the same should be true of emaciated women. Thinness should carry a health warning just like obesity."
