What makes this case so unique, is that five out of the six were said to suffer from Memory Distrust Syndrome. They started to distrust of their own minds and furthermore what was suggested to them during interrogation became more real than their own recollections. Memory Distrust Syndrome can create confusion so extreme that people may confess to crimes they didn't commit - even something as a serious as murder.

Is this the ideal Media Food Pyramid? Is there a scientific formula for a healthier diet for our brains? Where are the experts who can develop a defensible model? Addressing the growing trend to dine entirely on entertainment and social media is as important as addressing the physical eating habits of a nation.

'Disruption' is one of those phrases, isn't it? An annoying buzzword that's already entered into cliché. A word that makes you want to switch off. But however grating the term, the big digital disruptors of the day are transforming how we live and work.

At the obligatory 'boy loses girl' moment of the film, Boone desperately tries to tell James how much he likes her. Her response? A dry but true: "Of course you do, everyone does. I'm friggin' dope." Yeah, Jessica, you are, and it's time everyone knew.

Don't set your goals low, set them high. Don't set yourself up to fail but set yourself the daily, weekly, the yearly. Two, five, ten years from now, that fantasy goal. I've achieved every goal I've ever gone for but they haven't been exactly the way I've wanted them - a little to the left or right or under but not by much. There's a lot of times I've gone so far past that it's blown my mind and that's when inspiration meets perspiration.

Netflix needs to stop with T.V shows and movies that are supposed to help "spark a conversation" and "break the taboo" because they do so much more damage than help within the conversation.

Why I Won't Be Watching 'To The Bone'

Rachel Egan | Posted 17.07.2017 | UK Entertainment
Rachel Egan

What has also angered me and many others about this film, is that it simply reflects the huge misconceptions around eating disorders that are already prevalent in our society. For example, Ellen's character is your stereotypical young white woman, who is tragically misunderstood and hit with this hideous anorexic affliction leaving her with an emaciated body frame.

To The Bone Could Be Triggering For People Who Have Been Affected By Eating Disorders

Tom Quinn | Posted 14.07.2017 | UK Entertainment

To the Bone clearly presents the significant psychological distress felt by Ellen and those around her in treatment, and depicts the wider impact eating disorders have on the family circle. The film makes clear that anorexia and other eating disorders are serious mental illnesses, and not a choice or about dieting or vanity.

It's beautiful, disturbing, raw and powerful all at once. It melts your heart one minute and makes you squirm the next. And if it makes you stop eating meat or question the treatment of farm animals that are simply bred and killed for food then Director Bong Joon Ho has done his job. It's time we started taking more responsibility for what's on our plates, and I think after watching this film you probably will.

Gifs of Lily Collins' emaciated and bruised spine, will soon sit alongside black and white screenshots of Cassie from skins telling the world she didn't eat for three days so she could be lovely. Against the backdrop of an attractive middle-class home, soundbites like, 'it's like you have calorie Asperger's' are all too appealing.

'13 Reasons Why' Is Not A Driving Force For Mental Illness

Roisin Kelly | Posted 04.05.2017 | UK Entertainment
Roisin Kelly

13 Reasons Why should not be seen as a driving force for mental illness, as it fails to accurately or sensitively depict the link between mental illness and suicide. Although not intentionally, it is somewhat an exploitation of serious issues in young people today and could have a negative impact on vulnerable, impressionable teenagers.

I understand that people are especially worried about the effect the show will have on vulnerable teenagers, but sadly, suicide is so prevalent in our society. As a teenager I, like so many others, had a Tumblr account. And, like so many others, as I was scrolling through endless pictures of cats, glitter and tattoos, I would come across pictures of self harm
