how young is too young?

It seems like every year, working models seem to be getting younger and younger. This often leads to these young girls either become addicts of some sort, or suffering, sometimes dying, from eating disorders. This leads to the question- in your opinion, what is the youngest age you believe it would be okay to enter the modelling world?

Karmen Pedaru, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Frida Gustavsson started at 14 years old
Karlie Kloss, Monika Jagaciak, Ali Michael started at 13 years old

PLEASE DISCUSS; these girls may still be going through puberty, make impulsive, non-logical decisions, are vulnerable to older people taking advantage of them, may agree to do work which they will regret later in life.
