Online Casino Gaming and Health
Online casinos have become a more prevalent part of people’s lives, maybe because of the new mobile technologies that allow for a constant internet access no matter where you are. You no longer have to sit in front of a computer in order to enjoy your favorite online casino game. Because of this fact there have been quite a lot of concerns, as in any topics, about the health benefits and issues that could affect you or anyone who is playing.
It is a well known medical fact that humans are not meant to sit as much as we do nowadays. Our circulatory system has not evolved in a way that allows for a lot of sitting. This is because our ancestors spend a lot of their time on foot. Those who sat a lot did not have enough to eat. This is why they died out and the people who moved enough to find food were the ones to survive.
It has been proven that a person who sits at least 4 hours at a time will have the chance to develop higher blood pressure. There are even more serious issues that can occur due to sitting too much at a time like blood clogs and even tumors. Another issue that can occur is a problem with your eye sight. Though a lot of the screens we are looking at have become quite more eye friendly, starring at a screen for more than two hours straight can damage your retina. This will also lead to shortsightedness and other eye related issues.
These problems can be prevented by having a regular walk around the house. For example, if you are on the road and you are looking at your mobile screen in order to pass the time, put it down for half an hour so your eyes can rest from the screen. If you are home a lot and your only relief is a good game of casino poker, be sure not to sit as much. You should take a walk around the house in order to get your blood circulation going again otherwise you are risking a blood clot or even worse.
A benefit to online casinos is that you are stimulating your mind, depending on which games you are playing.
