Electronic Game Use is Associated with Childhood Obesity (thanks HomeLAN Fed) offers some results of a study. They point out "Evidence-based prevention of childhood obesity requires the identification of modifiable risk factors," going on to identify gaming (rather than, say, overeating), as one of them. Here's the deal: "In a study published in the June issue of the journal Obesity Research, researchers from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University Hospital Zurich present a strong association between playing electronic video games and childhood obesity in school-aged Swiss children. The researchers also found that obesity was associated with television watching, paternal smoking and mother's working outside the home."
