A British Newspaper has been printed with a very over the top headline!
I hate admitting I live in the UK sometimes :( This is so over the bloody top :(
Uk newspapers are always full of shit, apart from page 3 ;)
Yeah... Page 3 tends to be Photoshopped. Sorry to disappoint... well... maybe not.
This is so going to be a selling point next gen "Cancer Free Console" Anyway being serious, what a load of crap, that must mean I'm 95% cancer now with the amount of time I spend of games. Not taking screen breaks...headaches/pains, Yes. Cancer...No
its not saying games give you cancer,its the fact that they said that staring at a screen all day increases obesity and cancer,they said that gaming was a reason THEY WHERE STARING at the screen,they also included tv for another reason and internet....they never said gaming or tv gave cancer,just the reason for doing what could increase your chances of having it which is by being a lazy fat ass on the chair all day staring at your screen.... the Arthur of this post misread the article or is trying to look for hits.
did you read the article? It says in it that is was an over the top title and was presenting a misleading headline over facts that have nothing to do with games. That's the news >.>
Actually, bsjkupo, Muffins is correct. I actually read this article in the Mirror. They aren't saying Videogames cause cancer, like the author of this article tries to make out. They are saying that sitting around for hours playing games, watching TV, searching the web, leads to obesity if that it all your doing. This then increases your chances of getting cancer. The only misleading headline here is the author's. The Mirror's headline in no way blames videogames for cancer. Gamers are jumping the gun calling the Mirror out on this. Articles like the one above, do not help either. The above article is just as sensationalist as the Daily Mirror and is fishing for hits.
The Mirror are a bunch of retards. They're nearly as bad as the Sun.
And DailyMail. You know, I hate the media here in the US, but UK media is awfully retarded as well. :/
Yeah, I mean I wouldn't even use these tabloids for toilet paper because I'd get even more crap on my arse.
So what do adults like me spend most of their working day doing , you guessed it , staring at a computer screen. Does this mean I can sue my employer if I get fat or get cancer.
no shit lack of excercise and/or good eating can do that to you lol
UK newspapers are the most deluded form of media in the world, the stories are down right ludicrous....in fact the british media in general is ludicrous. They attack peoples hobbies with wild claims without any scientific backup at all or some falsified report backed up by some idiotic parent who is looking to blame something other than their bad parenting. http://www.thedailydust.co.... Apparently everything causes Cancer according to the UK media. The BBC even tried to claim protein supplement which is nothing more than powdered milk makes you angry..... This is why I just dont listen or respect the mainstream media anymore and on the note of cancer its a disgusting industry, thats right for the unaware its an industry meaning money is to be made from it. The cure has been out for a while, mega doses of vitamin C have been shown and proven through tests to be toxic to cancer cells. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Like he says in the video how come I havent heard of this if it is so good? well why would you when companies make billions of cancer patients worldwide? money is more important to certain people than honor or helping others to some. Another guy who found a cure is Dr Burzynski http://www.youtube.com/watc... And the medical industry tried their absolute best to silence him and get him shut down and shut up. Cancer is nothing more than a billion dollar industry and more people need to be made aware it is an industry and NOT a health service.
Thanks again media! For shedding light on these evil evil companies! Thanks to previous media warnings, I don't take my life saving vaccines any more and I'm perfectly finresohgghrttt,,.
And UK newspapers make people stupid. Journalism at it's worst right there.. Mirror, Sun, Daily Mail, all of them are almost specifically designed for retards. Just look at the title.. shouldn't it be it gives PEOPLE cancer but no, say kids because it's going to grab more attention and make it more shocking.
What a surprise, the media attacking video games again. Why has it got to be video games you tabloid scum? If sitting on your arse causes obesity and cancer then let's start blaming reading books, watching tv, eating at meal times, sitting on a bus/train/plane, sitting in class, sitting an exam, sleeping at night, doing homework or sitting in the doctor's waiting room? I could go on an on and on but you get the point. It's winter in the UK right now, dark outside after school and everybody is skint after christmas, so what do you expect kids to do? Can't read, watch TV, play board games, draw, write or anything they might be interested in because they all involve being inactive. So The Mirror, what do we do now? And please consider that children have spent many hours inactive doing things they enjoy for centuries, but suddenly it's an issue because it involves video games.......Take your sensationalist, scare tactics headlines and f*** off!
Watching Jersey Shore gives you cancer but you don't see articles on this.
that headline is very misleading. how can they call it a NEWS paper? o_O
