France bans extremely thin models

I welcome this new French law, that demands models to provide a doctor’s certificate showing their body mass index is healthy. A previous law, suggesting a minimum BMI, was rejected. I suppose that could have been perceived as dictating what marketable beauty is. But who can be against preventing that anorexia, a serious and often deadly mental state, be rewarded by a powerful industry?
