Europe takes a stand against airbrushing
Britain is leading the pack in the fight against airbrushing. The U.K.'s Committee of Advertising Practice has received a report compiled by more than 40 academics that demands a ban on ads including Photoshopped models targeted at girls under 16.
The report shows that there is a link between unhealthy behaviour in adolescents who are exposed to images of skinny, airbrushed images.
"The weight of the evidence...shows that thin, 'perfected' media images have a detrimental effect on how girls and women think and feel about their own bodies," said Dr. Helga Dittmar of the University of Sussex.
