Let the makers of XBox, GameBoy, Nintendo, and every other video, digital, and handheld game rejoice — it’s not your fault!
Up to now, society has been happy to point the finger firmly in your direction when people asked: why are America’s teenagers so fat?
“They’re sitting inside all day and night, playing those evil video games!”
“They’re not getting enough exercise — they just sit and stare at their computers!”
Why not blame technology? The theory was a pretty easy sell. But a recent study confirms that, over the past two decades, the amount of exercise that teens are getting has not changed.
They still aren’t getting enough, but the advent of technology hasn’t made the numbers worse.
Thank goodness. I can keep typing.
Yep, the real culprit is — you guessed it — diets with too much fat and calories.
Hope they didn’t pay too much for that study. (Should have used their computers more…)
