Did you get a Nintendo Wii this Christmas? Don’t push yourself too hard when you play otherwise you might be another victim…
If anyone opened up their presents and got a Nintendo Wii, we have a warning about a new medical condition that England’s The Sun newspaper are warning us about.
It’s called Wii-itus and about 10 people are being hospitalised every week because of it.
Caused by injuries sustained by playing the Wii, sufferers of Wii-itus get treated with anti-inflammatories and even cortisone injections.
Geeze. You wouldn’t think a family friendly console would do that to someone.
Apparently Wii-itus could potentially lead to “rheumatism and arthritis in later life.”
Just wow. And here I thought the Nintendo Wii did people some good by forcing them off of their backsides.
So there’s your warning people: don’t exert yourself too much when playing the Wii. It is just a game after all!
