BMC Public Health, 06/29/2012
Mikolajczyk RT et al. – There were substantial differences in body satisfaction and perceived appearance across the three largest ethnic groups of school–age children in the U.S. Stability across age indicates that these perceptions are most likely established before the age of 10 and underline the importance of primary schools and parents in prevention. Special attention should be directed to the dramatic loss of positive perceived appearance among African–American boys.
