The Singapore Health Promotion Board (HPB) has earned the Healthier Choice label over fellow Multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) title Dota 2.
“The salt content in Dota 2 is at extremely unhealthy levels and should be taken in moderation.” Said Mr. Kiam, spokesman of HPB. “When consumed in excessive quantities, Dota 2 players may face health complications such as kidney failure due to extreme salt intake. Severe cases may even develop into cancer” added Mr. Kiam.
“Heroes of the Storm is a much healthier alternative, and provides similar levels of entertainment, albeit less intense.” Mr. Kiam said at a press event.
Closing off with some advice, Mr. Kiam said that in addition to considering alternatives, players can consider “git gud” to avoid negative health implications.
