After surveying more than 2500 women in their 20s in Sweden, a recent study showed that young women playing computer games increase their risk of overweight and obesity.
In this study, about 2500 young people between the ages of 20 and 24 were surveyed at three different time periods in 2007, 2008 and 2012. Researchers from the Salger Institute investigated young women’s hair Does email, chat, or time spent playing computer games in free time affect their BMI?
After five years of research, the results show that women who play computer games for at least 1 hour/d and have a normal weight are more likely to be overweight (BMI over 25) or obese than women who don’t play computer games.
Sara Thomée, a researcher at Sarger Institute, said: “Young women who play computer games for more than 2 hours a day increase their BMI by an average weight increase of 3.7 kg. This data takes into account other risk factors for obesity, such as age, occupation, Calculated based on factors such as the total length of time on the daily computer, the length of exercise, the length of sleep, and the social support system."
However, weight gain has not been found in men. The reason for this phenomenon is not yet known. Sara Thomée believes that society needs to pay more attention to women's health and avoid female compatriots sitting at the computer desk for a long time playing computer games. Because women sitting at the table for a long time will not only make them fat, but also have an adverse effect on their waist, and will greatly reduce their vision, and will increase their risk of ovarian cancer. Therefore, female compatriots, stop sitting at the computer desk for a long time and play games, and go out more to relax themselves and their hearts.
