Game Informer Health Week

eSports Health Culling Fields – Game Informer

Trying to establish the evidence base for what has been posted by the eSports and gaming experts to see what ground has been covered. It looks as though a few years back that Game Informer had a full blown Gamer Health Week!

Topics covered included:

  • Hearing Loss
  • A gamers diet
  • Wrist health (e.g. carpal tunnel)
  • Vision Health
  • Healthy sleeping habits

Take a look at their blogs and some of the chats, not bad advice: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/tags/health+week/default.aspx

This commenter didn’t seem to believe the hype though:

what a stupid news post gi.you were all mad at someone for making a health report just like this.and i cant even understand why sleeping on a comfortable couch would be harmful.i played fallout 3 till 2 in the morning and i feel FI….

They do seem a little aggressive though…maybe some more sleep in a comfy bed will help.
