ASA rejects gaming 'health risk' ad complaints

'Not sufficient grounds for us to intervene' says Advertising Standards Authority

The Advertising Standards Authority will not uphold complaints against charity-backed ads which implied video games are a health risk, MCV understands.

Last week, MCV broke the news that the Government's Change4Life campaign had put together a print campaign backed by the British Heart Foundation, Diabetes UK and Cancer Research, which said young gamers were risking an 'early death' through inactive lifestyles.

The story is too old to be commented.
