A new Israeli law is taking on eating disorders.
It bans underweight models from catwalks and commercials.
The law uses Body Mass Index - a way of estimating healthy weight - to decide who can model, and who can't.
Anyone with a B-M-I less than 18-and-a-half, is out.
Spain and Australia have already set minimum weight limits for certain fashion shows.
Do you think this Israeli law is a good idea? Why or why not?
