A study by researchers at The University of Texas at Austin suggests that watching television is not associated with children’s weight, but playing electronic games may be—especially for girls. This epidemic might be the pre-cursor to the big booty hoes!

“Children with higher weight status spent moderate amounts of time playing electronic games, while children with lower weight status spent either a little or a lot of time playing electronic games,” said Dr. Elizabeth A. Vandewater, who led the study published in the February issue of the Journal of Adolescence.

Although the greater weight/video game link was found in this study with girls, she noted that future studies may reveal similar findings for boys. Either way, the findings could be significant considering how many American children play electronic games.

“While both television and video-game play can reasonably be considered sedentary activities, video-game play was related to children’s weight status while television was not,” she said. “This may mean that video-game play, but not television use, is indeed displacing the time children spend in more physically demanding pursuits.”
