How much would you give up for the perfect body? Health? Money? Years of your life? One recent study suggests that a third of young women would trade at least a year of life for the perfect figure. 

Researchers from the University of the West of England (UWE) and the U.K. eating disorder charity The Succeed Foundation recently polled over 300 British women at university campuses around the country to determine what they would be willing to give up for the perfect shape. The results?

Sixteen percent of the women surveyed would give up a year of their life for their ideal weight and shape, while 10% said they would be willing to trade two to five years of life. An astounding 10% said they would give up 10 years, while 1% said they’d forgo 21 years (!) of living!
