Much like egg whites are good for you again, videogames are once again bad for children. In a new study looking at over 50 years of data, two knuckleheads find that violent games and TV are the second worst thing in the world. Ever.
They claim that the only thing more harmful to health are cigarettes.
"Exposure to violent electronic media has a larger effect than all but one other well known threat to public health. The only effect slightly larger than the effect of media violence on aggression is that of cigarette smoking on lung cancer," they found.
There you have it... videogames are more harmful than fast food, sugary sodas, drugs, rap music, nuclear proliferation, witchcraft, Michael Vick, aliens, bullets, and most importantly... ROBOTS.
There is no denying that robots are the single most harmful thing to the future health of our species. Do your part and say "no" to robots!
