According to a very important study reported on by the Daily Mail in England, tree-climbing accidents among children are way down in the United Kingdom. And you can thank videogames. Finally, the press is giving games the credit they deserve for slowing down potentially deadly tree related accidents:

A spokesman for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents said: "Climbing trees allows kids to get out and about, be active, experience the world around them and interact with nature...We have asked ourselves whether it's better to break a wrist falling from a tree than developing Repetitive Strain Injury from playing computer games."

Hopefully, we can cancel Arbor Day this year too.

What do you think? Better to break your arm in a tree or get pwned at Gears of War?
