Skimpiness may prove to be quite expensive

Apr '08
Fashion industry of France is yet to react on the bill that was recently passed by The National Assembly, prohibiting promotion of excessive thinness.

The Government believes that, it is causing immense health hazards among young generation, who at times blindly follow fashion trends.

Experts believe that if the bill is approved by the Senate, people suffering from eating disorders like anorexia or bulimia can be sent to prison for three years and will have to shell out a hefty amount of nearly 45,000 euros as fine.

If the Government has its way, then the fashion arena will experience a major set back as they are the ones who encourage and advertise skimpiness on a grand level.

This law has been warmly welcomed by doctors, psychologists and parents who remain worried due to self starvation, which has become the latest fad among youth to maintain skimpiness and which ultimately leads to health related problems.

However, a major flaw of this bill is that it does not clearly mention the exact criteria for 'extreme thinness'.
