Gaming Addictions Cause Health Issues, Even Death, in China

Internet cafes are a huge phenomenon in countries such as South Korea and China. People play video games here for hours on end with little breaks. Players become addicted to their games and are so submerged in them that they live more in the virtual game than in reality. These café players forget to take care of their bodies. A lot of them don’t eat or sleep or get up to move and stretch muscles. So much so in this particular case that a gamer died of cardiac arrest and was left unnoticed for nine hours. His body was found by a waitress, still in a gaming position at his computer.
