21 Year old Brazilian Model dies of Anorexia

read story on CNN here:

This is terribly sad. Especially because I know some young women just as underweight who refuse to believe they are at risk of death or health complications. The denial in anorexia is deep and not easily penetrated. My heart breaks for the mother of this beautiful girl; while I also applaud Brazil for taking a stance on too low of weight/bmi in models.

Please share your thoughts.
