Here's a link to a CNN story about a lawmaker that wants to set state standards for models.

http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/01/31/ski....ap/index.html

Here's my opinion:

I think it's a good idea but won't make much difference. Say that the new standard for fashion models is now sizes 6-8 instead of 0-2. Women of smaller size and larger sizes will then decry that these sizes are not representative of the real world. Can't please everyone.


These new regulations may prevent anorexia because the models will need to eat in order to maintain the requirement for the increase in size to stay employed.


Is this going to stop bulimia? Nope. Models within these sizes are still going to binge and purge to stay within the requisite sizes. No change.


There should be, in my opinion, stronger requirements overall for underage models. Rules concerning curfews, continuing high school education requirements as well as escorts/chaperones should be strengthened.


I pretty sure we can all agree that the fashion industry in general chews up these young models and discards them without a hint of remorse. Stronger standards are needed and the fashion industry will adapt.


Just my two cents. Any other opinions?

Give a politician an inch and he'll take a mile. They will champion any issue if they think it will get them votes. I wonder when they'll start regulating how heavy a person becomes. A lot more people have health issues from too much weight rather than too little weight.
Cheers,

Guys in my opinion I give to the politiciant a big applause, why I have to teenage Daughters one is heavy than Another one. my wife for year she was suffered for been over weigh after surgery now she happy. everybody have wake up been healthy is one of the main issuse for all of us is heath. been healthy if not determinated how skinny or how heavy you are, If determinated by your BMI (Body Mass Index) and how tall you are, and the BMI tell you in detail if you are over or under weight. and I am not Discriminate. the last thing we need is a dead model on the set. we has to set the standard. this doesn't mean the we has start check every model for how much there weight and her or BMI. I know all this bcos I spent most of my life study 2 years after two of my best friend died one for underand the another for over weight and my wife become really heavy when we take the job as truck driver cross country. we has to think about aways how healthy we are.

Bu we has set the standard or ask you self how much or how littel weightis enough.
