France, where 30-40 thousand people suffer from anorexia, is preparing a bill to ban thin models from the catwalk.
According to the Health Ministry, models have to eat well and take care of their health because they are an example for women.
“Under the bill, before being recruited by the agency, the model must undergo a medical examination to check her body mass index, which is calculated by dividing weight by height. This is an indicator of the World Health Organization, which determines if the person is undernourished,” says an MP from the Socialist Party Olivier Veran.
The body mass index should not be less than 18. That is, if a girl has is 180 tall, her weight cannot fall below 58 kg
