Anorexia nervosa (AN) has an etiology where there are different factors, one of them relevant: taking some female corporal figure like the absolute of woman’s existence. This false stereotype pushes many women to absurd diets without any medical control, which causes AN. To change the dominant consumer society which alienates us, it is without doubt one of the best preventive therapies against AN.
