305w ago - Video games are now a health concern. That's what President Obama is saying anyways.

During a speech to the American Medical Association, President Obama made a comment about video games being a factor in unhealthy lifestyles.

To quote: The second step that we can all agree on is to invest more in preventive care so that we can avoid illness and disease in the first place. That starts with each of us taking more responsibility for our health and the health of our children.

It means quitting smoking, going in for that mammogram or colon cancer screening. It means going for a run or hitting the gym, and raising our children to step away from the video games and spend more time playing outside."

General couch potatoe behaviour is killing our nations. Sitting in front of the TV, The computer and Video Games. Don't get me started on the "Entitlement" issues that are arising. People for the sake of your health, get off your arses and get some excercise at least twice a week. I am sure there are those of you who don't.

Yeah, it doesn't take much insight to know that people should quit smoking or get more exercise

WOOT, the government now wants to regulate what we do in our free time because we are incapable of making our own decisions and living with them... Where's the roof on this thing?!?!

While he's making a point there, It kinda depends on where you live and if it's raining or not.
I mean what's healthier for a kid? Playing video games inside your house or playing outside where the air is extremely poluted.

You know... there are alot of houses build near heavy industry, airports, highways and stuff like that.
Other then that it's more of a health concern due to the fact that you're isolating yourself from society (if you spend hours and hours behind a computer/console).

Video Games are fun as hell, but the President makes a point. Not too healthy playing all the time to the point where you don't get up and get some regular exercise in. But hey, that's those peoples' fault for not caring for their own health.

Nice to be concerned about it, but I really think the President needs to concentrate on fixing this nation and its economy first before worrying about video games as a health concern.
