Okay so now it's video games' fault that some people have finger deformities. This is according to Miketomich.com, which says finger "injuries" can be sustained while playing video games.
The site is actually the result of a concerned grandfather's quest to find out why young'uns developed bent/twisted arthritic fingers. This quest took him five years and a half, and now he's passing on the word to anyone who doesn't want their kids to have screwed-up fingers. "This web site freely reveals the results to prevent further injures to children and adults," so the site says.
The pic above shows the hands of 11 year old Whitney, who has been gaming since she was 2. Notice the middle finger deformity.
In his study, he found that children develop the injuries because their bones are still too soft, soft enough to be bent by strong, repetitive forces. "The permanent and accumulative damage from these forces is silently inflicted without pain because of the numbing effects they deliver to the the soft bones," he said.
So he now recommends that no one below eight years old should play video games, nor should anyone below five years should pick up a crayon and start coloring. It's not clear what methods he used to actually qualify the causality of video games in finger "injuries" but he did show pictures of hands that, according to him, were damaged by gaming.
