Because more and more girls are tempted to step into the pro-anorexia side, the French government tries to stop the phenomenon by promoting new laws that would reduce the number of websites encouraging this matter. According to Reuters, the pages or blogs supporting anorexia may get two years in jail and a fine of approximately 30,000 for the so-called "incitement to excessive thinness by publicising of any kind." Moreover, the sentence could be expanded to three years in prison in case someone dies due to the advises or methods described on the website.
