The Effects of Viewing Pro-Eating Disorder Websites: A Systematic Review

A systematic review of English language research on websites promoting eating disorders reveals little consensus on the websites effects. The emotive and seemingly dangerous content of these websites deserves further research and directions for this are discussed.


Objective: To determine health-related effects of viewing pro-eating disorder (Pro-ED) websites.

Methods: A systematic review was carried out addressing: 1. The effect of viewing pro-ED websites on ‘eating disorder behaviour’, 2. The effect of viewing pro-ED websites on viewers’ negative and positive affect.
