A study shows that video games are not a disease

By | Videogames | No Comments

Are video games dangerous to health? In May of this year, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the love of video games as a new disease since they were attributed similar pathologies to other addictions.

However, Professor Andrew Przybylski of the Oxford Internet Institute (OII) says that the study on which WHO was based has failed to examine the general context of what is happening in the lives of young people today.

The report presented by the OII has not found a direct relationship between video games and their consumption as a clinical disorder. The research included more than 1,000 teenagers consuming video games and those responsible for their care.

But the results could not determine that video games produce any disorder, but that the players use it as an escape valve on external problems. This research seeks to change the concept that WHO and public opinion have about video games, a sector that is starting to be fed up with being labeled as addictive.
