Washington: Watch out for the kind of video games your kids play ! According to a new study the kids who play violent video games might be at a greater risk for depression.
The study conducted at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School recorded significantly more depressive symptoms over the course of a year among fifth-graders from three U.S. cities who reported playing high-violence video games for 2 or more hours a day, compared to those who reported playing low-violence video games for less than 2 hours a day.
The researchers included Susan R Tortolero and coauthors from The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Public Health, RAND Corporation in Santa Monica, The University of Alabama at Birmingham, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, and Boston Children's Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
