Israeli Model Law

Government officials in Israel have passed a new law banning the use of significantly underweight models in country-wide advertising.  The law, designed to challenge the glorification of the thin ideal, will also require advertisers who use airbrushing/editing to slim models down to acknowledge this in print.

Officials are hopeful that these measures will reduce the rates of anorexia in Israel.  What do you think?
