Are Video Games & Cell Phones Giving Your Kids Arthritis?!

Wed, May 25, 2011 3:45pm EST by 2 Comments

Children as young as EIGHT are spending so much time texting and playing video games that they’re destroying the joints in their hands!

Kids are spending up to seven hours a day on the weekends using cellphones and consoles and the repetitive action is bringing on arthritis symptoms more common in the elderly, according to concerned experts. Is this happening to YOUR kids?

Critics have long claimed addictive video games turn our kids into unfit recluses, and now joint experts are weighing in. They want health warnings to be pasted on video games, to warn parents of the dangers of too much use.

Dr. Gavin Cleary told The Sun newspaper how he had treated children for “excessive” PlayStation use, adding, “With increasing numbers of children using gaming devices there should be consideration for statutory health warnings.”

What do you think HollyMoms? Is this a genuine worry — or an overreaction?
