In an attempt to promote healthy body images, Israel has banned underweight models from appearing in advertisements and on fashion runways. Models must also submit medical records proving they have a body mass index of at least 18.5%.

"Beautiful is not underweight, beautiful should not be anorexic," said Rachel Adato, who pushed for the bill.
