Other such pro-social media can be found in New Moon Girls, a magazine that promotes healthy body image and active lifestyles, as well as Dove’s “Real Beauty” campaign for real women (Benowitz-Fredericks, 2012). Hogan (2012) also comments on how exercise video games, media literacy games (i.e. The Baby Game) and positive lyric songs can help promote a positive attitude toward life, including body image. The only problem is television companies and media owners are not proponents of pro-social media because it does not make for “good” television or, more importantly,
Breastfeeding helps to promote facial structure development, increased bone density, enhanced speech, better vision, as well as improved brain and nervous system development. Breastfeeding helps to reduce the risk of SIDS, tooth decay, iron deficiency, acute appendicitis, inguinal hernias, diabetes, and childhood obesity. Breast milk keeps a close pace with the infant's individual growth and nutritional needs, which gives them the most complete and optimal mix of nutrients and antibodies. Breastfeeding brings the mother and child closer together. It provides them with the perfect opportunity to share and build a unique bond, which only the mother can give.
One of the bonuses of this type of design is that the participants are chosen at random, which minimizes the chances of biases. This type of design allows the investigator to have extensive control over the research process (Jekel, 2007). The best way to understand how this type of study works is to provide an example of a potential study. Young women between the ages of 20-25 who are seen by Dr. Greene’s office have been coming in and complaining about sever unrelenting menstrual issues that they have not dealt with previously. They have tried some medicines on the market such as Midol and Pamprin who claim to help the discomfort of the menstrual cycle.
Joseph and Karin DiSanto both describe the nutrients included in breast milk along with the convenience of breast feeding in the article, Breastfeeding vs. Formula Feeding. Jason England and the rest of the authors of the power point, Breast Feeding vs. Bottle Feeding, describes how breast feeding can benefit the health of a mother and her infant. Marisa Salcines, in Breastfeeding Health Benefits, also adds a few more health benefits provided by breast feeding.
When young girls see people in advertisements that look that way, Jean Kilbourne, creator of “Killing Us Softly III,” explains that they try to mimic the look of these models who have been digitally enhanced and are genetically skinny. She claims that if there wasn’t this pressure on young girls to look a certain way, there would be less eating disorders and girls would be more confident about how they look. The media doesn’t care that thousands of girls are killing themselves to become a body type that rarely exists, the media just wants to sell their product by using someone that society sees as sexy to sell it. Kilbourne also talks about how women in advertisements are seen as objects. She talked about a specific ad for skateboards where the woman is on all fours and the man is using her as a leg rest.
The two concepts from the study of culture would be most useful to the marketing of Juicy Couture are norms and sanctions.

We live in an image conscious culture, which urges all of us (especially women) to improve our appearance. The messages sent by magazines, t.v., and other media include "buy certain clothes and products; straighten and whiten your teeth; get rid of your wrinkles; and most commonly, LOSE WEIGHT and you will be happy, admired, and loved." The recent and recurrent debate concerning the unhealthy, stick thin models used in the fashion industry is a perfect example of how strongly entrenched our notion of "thinness equals happiness" has become. Although many of us would benefit from eating a bit less and exercising more in order improve our health and fitness, simply watching what you eat is NOT an eating disorder. Eating Disorders are potentially life-threatening illnesses which are simultaneously psychological and physical in nature.
