According to Business Insider, ‘Pokemon Go’ has more downloads than Tinder and it’s about to have more than Twitter! How unbelievable is that?! There are an incredible amount of people going out and “catching them all”!
Here are some benefits of playing ‘Pokemon Go’:

For example being outside provides Vitamin D. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, an increasing number of people are suffering from vitamin D deficiencies. This vitamin has several health benefits, including preventing kids from future bone problems, diabetes and even heart disease. With ‘Pokemon Go’, people are actually somewhat forced to leave their houses to play. Amazing!
