Video games and obesity
Our hypothesis has been proven to be correct. Children who spend a large number of hours playing video games are at greater risk of being overweight, and in some cases obese.
Obesity can lead to many health problems like hypertension, high cholesterol levels, heart diseases and many more. Addiction to television and too much video gaming has become one of the reasons for obesity in children. Children should be encouraged to get out of the house and play outdoors more often to improve their strength and stamina, build healthy muscles and bones, and help them reduce their weight. The number of hours they spend watching television and playing video games should be restricted.
To improve the reliability and accuracy of our results, a larger sample of participants should be used.
This science fair project may be repeated, this time, to evaluate the relationship between watching television and obesity.
The science fair project can also be repeated, tracking the calorie intake of video gamers and their respective BMI.
