Obesity due to Gaming GR#3

“Some studies in children and teens suggest that computer, video game, and Internet use are associated with excess weight”

I don’t think it’s that breaking of a discovery that sitting around can make you out of shape. But all jokes aside, obesity is a serious dilemma in our country, and video games sure don’t help all that much. Or do they? I believe they can, and the article also hints at this. I think this would be interesting to further investigate. How can video games benefit wellness? Because I think we are at a time where gaming is really breaking it’s own borders and transcending all media.
