Finally, a step in the right direction. Israel is one of the first countries in the world to set regulations to help prevent the use of underweight models. Parliament has issued a new law that requires models to submit health records in order to make sure that they are not malnourished. Parliament is also requiring magazines and advertisers to disclose to readers when a models image was altered in any way to make her look thinner. Hopefully the rest of the world will follow in Israel’s footsteps and help set the right example for young women!
