Pokémon GO Can Help Fight Obesity

I think we can all agree on the fact that the Homeland generation (Generation Z) is the most technology-obsessed, binge-watching group of fanatics ever to walk on the face of this earth. Some have even gone as far as to say that without an iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy residing in their hands, they are enveloped by feelings of emptiness and have the same sensations as the phantom limb syndrome suffered by amputees.

Just like the hit song of a season, this is the summer of Pokémon GO and everyone is singing its jam. Reality sprinkled with cartoonish virtual monsters is a unique but brilliant recipe meant to entice even the stubbornest of the audience.

Remember the silly hunting trips and treasure hunting games we used to enjoy as a child, well the most astounding thing about this app is that it is basically a treasure hunt crossed with a fairy tale, which makes it a good excuse to go outside and breathe in some fresh air. You could call it a revival of our childhood antics, or a walk down the memory lane.

The health related aspects are pretty damn obvious if you ask us, more people are walking, talking, burning calories, and breathing in the intoxicating fresh air which means there is going to be a dramatic increase in fitness related behavior. Increased foot traffic means no more sitting around binging, worrying about how to escape boredom. It could be the solution to America’s obesity problem, according to an article published by The Guardian.
