Plastic Surgery Addiction Research: An Annotated Bibliography
Milner, Colin. “The Perfect Body Could Be Detrimental to Our Health.”
Dynamic Argument. Ed. Robert Lamm and Justin Everett. Houghton Mifflin Company, 2007 This article is found in the book “Dynamic Argument”. The article is about how people obsessing over cosmetic surgery and cosmetics are forgetting what is important when it comes to bettering yourself. That is you need to better yourself from the inside out. You need to take your vitamins and you need to exercise and eat healthy food you cannot rely on surgery and cosmetics for everything. Colin Milner is chief executive officer of the International Council on Active Aging™. An award-winning writer, Milner has authored more than 100 articles on aging-related issues. Milner’s role of leading the International Council on Active Aging gives him the credibility of knowing how fitness affects the body, as well as how aging affects both body and mind. In this article, Milner is qualified enough to make an ethical opinion, however his image is not so strong that it would give the audience overwhelming encouragement to take his side in the argument. His authority as head of one of the largest fitness and wellness associations for seniors increases his ethos. The knowledge Milner possesses concerning health and aging makes him a credible enough author to bring concern to the idea that the perfect body could be detrimental to our health. Through this credibility, Milner uses ethos to argue that modifying the body could send the wrong message to younger generations who should be focusing on inner beauty. This source is relevant to my research since I am focusing on plastic surgery addiction and give a solution to this problem by focusing on the true meaning of beauty.
