I could only handle a small amount of viewing before I wanted to smack some adult heads. Good grief!
Sorry I'm not available to tweet right now. This is clearly a battle that needs to be fought for the health and safety of children... more children than before, thanks to GMA giving this "activist" a platform for her views.

This idea is irresponsible on so many levels. I am all for clean-eating, environmental responsibility, etc. as *an adult*. Healthy eating awareness in the guise of a cleanse (for a child no less) is absolutely unnecessary and bound to trigger possible ED behaviors in children predisposed to an ED. Quite shocked by this. And my question also was, what are her qualifications in this area?

Leslie Richmand

I am a therapist for over 30 years specializing in eating disorders. I have written to GMA to voice my concerns about this segments but their website limits the amount of characters I can type. I have asked for an address to send a more detailed letter expressing the obvious concerns. Let's see what they come back with. From what I can garner she has NO professional qualifications in this area. She refused to address that question in her twitter when asked and deleted anything that she deemed NEGATIVE. So that tells me a great deal. Jennifer, your comments are excellent. Can you forward this entire post to GMA if I get the address from them?

Now THAT'S what I'm talkin' about--that's how to create an argument that stands a chance at succeeding with an audience that doesn't want to hear what it has to say. Your appeals are so well aimed that they force Rainbeau to be the asshole here if they are ignored. You do not rant. You do not insult. You are clear and rational and informed, thus making yourself the voice of reason.

No matter what response you receive, you win.

The clear explanation here must be insanity.
Yikes.

This is so very well written and thoughtfully presented. I would hope that at least someone from GMA would respond. Brava to you!
