Way to go, Israel!!!

A new Israeli law bans showing overly thin models from local advertising in an attempt to fight the spread of eating disorders.

It also requires publications to disclose when they use altered images of models to make the women and men appear even thinner than they really are.

The law, passed late Monday, appears to be the first attempt by a government to use legislation to take on a fashion industry accused of abetting eating disorders by idealizing extreme thinness.
