Anorexic girl kills herself after row over food09 Nov 2015

An 11-year-old girl with anorexia is thought to have committed suicide, reportedly after rowing with her mother over food.

The girl, who had been being treated for anorexia for several years, died after jumping from the third floor balcony of the family’s home in the

Crocetta

district of Turin on Sunday night, 

Torino

Oggi

 reported.

She reportedly said she was going out onto the balcony for some fresh air after having an argument with her mother because the girl wouldn't eat her dinner.

An

ambulance was called and she was taken to the city's Regina Margherita hospital, where she died of trauma to the head shortly after arriving.

Over three million Italians suffer from eating disorders, with the majority of sufferers being children, according to government figures.

A

report by the Ministry of Health in 2013 said there are an estimated 2,500 new cases of

anoxeria

and more than 3,000 of bulimia each year.Slide2

Last year a group of Italian MPs proposed jail terms and hefty fines for people encouraging eating disorders. The aim was for the proposed legislation to be used against people running websites which are viewed as encouraging eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia.Italy has moved to try and tackle the problem in the past. The country grabbed international attention in 2006 after skinny models were banned from the catwalk at Milan Fashion Week.

In early 2013 Italy joined Spain and Israel in adopting laws against ultra-thin models on catwalks and in advertising campaigns.Slide3

I Spent a Week Undercover in a Pro-Anorexia WhatsApp GroupA few weeks ago, I was chatting to a friend about the kind of lifestyle choices that can ruin your life. Eventually, we landed on pro-

ana

. "Ana" stands for the illness anorexia nervosa and "pro" connotes an obsessive and absolute devotion to it. My friend told me that wannabe anorexics look for and find each other in forums with the ultimate goal of driving each other deeper into anorexia.

It took no longer than five minutes of googling for me to find a forum full of pro-

ana

enthusiasts in my country of residence, Switzerland.

According

to the website, pro-

ana

is more than a lifestyle: it's a religion. There was a post with a list of commandments ("Refusing to eat and being thin are signs of true success and strength!") and another titled 

Ana's Letters

.

In

these letters, "Ana" speaks to the reader as the "goddess of emaciation", explaining that stomach cramps caused by laxatives are to be celebrated as the death rattle of the hated pounds. The goddess of emaciation also warns that if you break her rules, you will be punished.

"I will force you into the bathroom, onto your knees. You will stare into the empty toilet bowl. You will stick your fingers in your throat and, not without pain, your food will come out. You need to do this over and over and over again, until you taste blood and water, and know it's all gone. When you stand up, you'll feel dizzy. Don't faint! Stand straight! You fat cow, you deserve all the pain you get," the post writes.
