Xbox Marathon Gives Player a Deadly Blood Clot

If you had all the time in the world to play your favorite video game over and over and over again, well, don't. It will kill you. At least get up and shower once every day and a half.

One Halo lover who played his favorite game for 12 straight hours developed a blood clot so severe during his marathon gaming session that it killed him.

Chris Staniforth from the UK developed a condition known as deep vain thrombosis that developed from sitting way too long during his gaming sessions. The blood clot formed in his leg and traveled to his lung causing a fatal pulmonary embolism. His condition is akin to similar cases from people who sit too long during long flights. The National Heart and Lung Association can explain it better than a lowly blogger ever could on their website.

So if you're going through an epic marathon gaming session for charity, World Record attempting, or just to pass the time in between unemployment checks, make sure you get up and walk around and don't remain so sedentary.
