Just posted an interesting article looking at whther some of the new physically interactive video games should be promoted as "healthy." It can be found here:
At issue is whether games like the Wii can replace traditional exercise and also whether it is ethical for the American Heart Association to allow Nintendo to put the AHA "Heart Check" logo on its game console (Nintendo paid the AHA $1.5 million).
One doctor asked if the AHA wil also allow its logo to be placed on "bicycles and basketballs." Good question!
I guess my position is that it is better than nothing and comparable to other activity IF you were to do it outdoor in the freash air and sunshine.
What is your experience. Anybody use video games to work aup a good sweat?
