Thoughts On The Issue

What is your opinion on these actions and recommendations? Is it a positive move toward health, or just more body shaming at the opposite end of the spectrum? Do you think things could be handled better?

Obviously, the eating disorders and low self-esteem need to be addressed. Is there a way to do so, without body shaming those who simply cannot gain weight?

Can this be fixed by government imposed bans, and if not, what measures as a society must we take to remedy the health problems while increasing body positivity?
