Thin models affect on body image

The link below is to an article from Walden Behavioral Care about how poor body image comes from ultra thin models in advertisements.  This article talked about how the average height and weight for a model is 5’10” and 110 pounds where in reality most people are 5’4” and 145 pounds.  When there is that much difference and the average person looks at thousands of advertisements and articles with these women on them why wouldn’t the average person have poor body image.  I also want to show what I mean by posting some images of these ultra thin models to prove my point.  Those images above would be what I mean about thin model advertisements.
