When Will it Stop? Another Model Dies


I know people are hesitant to blame the fashion/modeling industry but it is hard to defend the industry when another model passes away from malnutrition.

Eliana Ramos (pictured here) was found dead in her home in Montevideo (Uruguay) by relatives. Preliminary examinations indicated her death was caused by a heart attack from malnutrition. What's even more sad? Last August, her sister, 22-year-old Luisel Ramos, was performing a catwalk show and died shortly after from heart failure caused by malnutrition.

With reports of more models passing away from not eating, it is hard not to point fingers at the modeling industry for causing (or at least aiding) eating disorders. The debate is still open -- Gisele blames parents, but do you? Take the poll, Who do you blame for eating disorders?
