Approved this month in the House of Representatives, the bill's parliamentary Enio Bacci (PDT-RS) requires agencies that hire models the mandatory medical evaluation, attesting that the contractor is free from eating disorders and their complications. The bill awaits the resumption of the work of the Senate in February, opening for submission of amendments and choice of rapporteur on the committee.

The bill also requires agencies to provide periodic monitoring physical and mental models, including being responsible for the costs. Estimates from the World Health Organization (WHO) indicate that eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia affect women more often, especially teenagers. These disorders affect up to 4% of the female population in the world.

The law encourages a healthier ideal of beauty, as inadequate nutrition and diets dangerous to your health habits are common among girls who are struggling to establish himself in the profession. The bill was introduced in 2006 after the death of model Ana Carolina Reston Paulo, age 21, from complications caused by anorexia.
