Eating disorders（混乱）is very common now.“When I first wrote about this，the problem was pretty much hidden…I didn’t expect ii to get：as bad as it is，”Susie Orbach，all intema’tional authority（权威）on eating disorders，said.
Orbach must at times think the anti-diet message of her book“Fat is a Feminist（女权主义的）Issue（问题）”has been lost since it was written more than 20 years ago.
Girls，boys，old people-even the famously well-rounded female（女性）population of Fiji is failing victim（牺牲品）to fat fears."If anything.the situation has got much，much worse.We nOW have kids as young aseight and women in old people’s homes worried about the way they look，" Orbach said.
Even though it has been proved that repeated dieting results in a little more than regaining most of the lost weight, constant dieting（节食）has become a way of life for many women.48 per cent of British women aged 25 t0 35 were on some kind of diet and that 20 per cent of young wonen dieted all or most of time.Some of them said they would pop a pill to give them their beautiful shape.even if it meant risking their health.
Worldwide，70 million people have an eating disorder.Most are women，but men are increasingly affected，too.
More than half the women and two-thirds of the men in Britain weigh too much，while in
the United States more than one quarter of adults and about one in five children are overweight.The idea that female beauty is a very thin body could be changed，if clothing factories and
magazines showed images（形象）of women of an shapes instead of selecting skeletal-like models and stick.thin actresses.
But that is easier said than done.
To get her message across.Orbach is also considering talking to pop stars such as Victoria Beckham and Geri Halliwell，both of whom have admitted（承认）having suffered from eating disorders.
47.According to Susie Orbach，________.
A.nobody had suffered from eating disorders 20 years before

B.girls，boys，old people were falling victim of fat fear
C.even the famously well-rounded women of Fiji were falling victim of fat fear
D.they worried about the way they looked
49.Even if repeated dieting results in more than regaining most of the lost weight，in Britain________.
A.forty-eight per cent of old women were on some kind of diet
B.women aged twenty-five to thirty-five dieted all 6r most of time
C.twenty per cent of young women dieted all or most of time
D.all the people were risking their health to get their beautiful shape
