Israeli Law Bans Underweight Models in Ads

A new Israeli Law has been put into action banning underweight models from local advertising and requiring publications to disclose when they use altered images to make women and men appear thinner. The article from USA Today also explains that this is "appears to be the first attempt by any government to use legislation to take on a fashion industry accused of abetting eating disorders by idealizing extreme thinness."


What are your thoughts, do you think legislation should do something about the thinness of models here in the US?

No. Because guess what. It's not the government's job to create and enforce such laws. It's not their place to do or have any part in this aspect of the people's lives. It's ridiculous.
