In recent years eating disorders have increased theirpresence in Mexico. It has been suggested that internet and social network which promote restrictive behavior influence and may be responsible for this increment. Nowadays, internet plays a fundamental roll inthe teaching-learning process and a very importanttool in informal education, however, the use of internetand social network haven’t been significantly related tothe development of those eating disorders. On the other hand, one of the most accepted models about influential factors of the mentioned disorders leaves outthe possibility that constant contact with these technology tools favors the development of anorexia and bulimia and other unspecified problems if we do not havethe presence of other important factors.
