The Picture of Health?

I'm not sure who all have heard of this, BUT:

"Madrid's fashion week has turned away underweight models after protests that girls and young women were trying to copy their rail-thin looks and developing eating disorders.'Fashion is a mirror and many teenagers imitate what they see on the catwalk,' said regional official Concha Guerra.The mayor of Milan, Italy, Letizia Moratti, told an Italian newspaper this week she would seek a similar ban for her city's show unless it could find a solution to "sick" looking models.
The Madrid show is using the body mass index or BMI -- based on weight and height -- to measure models. It has turned away 30 percent of women who took part in the previous event. Medics will be on hand at the September 18-22 show to check models." (CNN.com)

I personally think it's a good idea, considering how many girls and young women look up to those in the fashion world. What do you all think?
