Israel has it own photoshop-law from now on! And I think it is amazing!
Models who want to work in Israel have to be healthy! I think that is a amazing thing. A lot of young girls get distorted images of their body, because of the very skinny models.
“As of January 1, models who want to work in print ads and runway shows in Israel must provide potential employers with medical proof certifying that they have a body mass index (BMI) of at least 18.5. The new law is called “the Photoshop law” because of an additional regulation placed on advertisers requiring clear labeling on ads featuring digitally-altered images of models.”
As read on Fstoppers.com

“The numbers of Israeli women and girls suffering from eating disorders now match those of industrialized Western countries, but the problem went largely unacknowledged until the 2007 death of a well-known Israeli model.”

I think this is a good step in the right direction!
