Are body image issues among boys taken seriously?

Listen

A new study found that boys are concerned with reshaping their bodies and fitting a muscular ideal, even if it means taking steroids.
 
Hear Jian talk to Dianne Neumark-Sztainer, one of the researchers behind the study titled "Muscle-enhancing Behaviors Among Adolescent Girls and Boys." Michael Atkinson, a professor in the Faculty of Kinesiology at the University of Toronto, also weighs in on why we need to take the issue of boys and body image more seriously.
 
What do you think? Is this an issue that should get more attention?
