A bill initiated by Kadima MK Rachel Adatto to force people suffering from anorexia to be treated in hospital even against their will passed its first reading in the Knesset on Monday. The bill had been requested by frustrated physicians who see patients die without treatment for the eating disorder.

Meanwhile, Adatto’s other bill that would prohibit emaciated images (real or doctored) of people in the media was due late Monday night to be passed on its final readings.
