Koreans either stunned and resentful after finding out about Japan’s “fat-shaming” law

Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Regardless of being known for their plastic surgical operation procedures, South Korea is it appears jealous of Japan’s new law. 

Recently, a post on Daum Cafe highlighted the subject on “Metabo Law,” a law that allegedly makes it unlawful to be fat. It used to bepublished that Japan mandates its voters between the ages of forty five to 74 years old to have their waistlines measured once or more a year. It isn't true, however, that a personcan be fined or imprisoned for being overweight.

If one is going over the prescribed waistline, one will be required for a consultation with a fitness care providerand may exist given advices to inspirea more fit living.

Another piece of data that became brought up with the law was that of the sumo wrestlers. As the law best applies between 40 to 75 years old and the bulk of sumo wrestlers might no longer be measured all through the time in their career.

As the document was posted online, netizens are wishing that such law will have to be implemented in South Korea too, as it prevents obesity-related sicknesses and promotes upperexistence expectancy.
