In a recent homepage poll, Teen Health & Wellness asked teens: Should active video games, like the Wii, be considered exercise?
Interestingly, responses were almost equally split. Half (48%) of teens said that the Wii should be considered exercise, while the other half (52%) said it should not. So in this case, the verdict is still out.
