"She was so hooked to the game she wouldn't even go to the toilet," the girl's mother told the Sunday People. "My husband saw her light on in the night and found her sitting on a urine-soaked cushion playing the game."
If that's not horrifying enough:
The parents said their daughter started showing aggressive behavior after becoming hooked on the game. She would fall asleep in school and becoming aggressive with her peers. The parents also said they discovered charges amounting to $67 a month to Microsoft on the family's credit card statement. After the girl's father tried to take away the Xbox, she reportedly slapped him across the face for attempting to withdraw the console.
In 2011, The WHO officially classified all sources of cell phone and WiFi radiation as a possible carcinogen. These games and other sources of Digital Addiction are often accessed by using WiFi.
According to experts, WiFi exposure doesn't just increase cancer risk and children's brains also suffer more damage from exposure:
"What microwave radiation does in most simplistic terms is similar to what happens to food in microwaves, essentially cooking the brain," Black said. "So in addition to leading to a development of cancer and tumors, there could be a whole host of other effects like cognitive memory function, since the memory temporal lobes are where we hold our cell phones."
"Children's skulls and scalps are thinner. So the radiation can penetrate deeper into the brain of children and young adults. Their cells are at a dividing faster rate, so the impact of radiation can be much larger." said Black of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
