Xiao Wang (2010) reports the upsetting truth on media shaping individuals’ intentions on what their body should look like. His findings raise many important questions. When one thinks about media having an influence on their body, the first thing that comes to mind may be women’s body image. These findings show that sports magazines influence men’s self-image. This has been a result of the past few decades representing very thin women and very masculine men in the U.S media. Research has shown that the mass media is somewhat responsible for college females’ eating disorders (Wang, 2010). Unlike these female students, men are more infatuated with increasing their body mass, resulting in the use of steroids. This study utilized an internet-based survey that took place in the Spring of 2006. 3,000 students were randomly selected from a large southeastern university; to increased the response rate, 20 students would be given a $25 gift card (Wang, 2010). The survey consisted of asking the student how frequently they feel the difference sources of media influence their image and health. Results showed that television did not have much influence on student’s self image but fashion and entertainment magazines did (Wang, 2010).
