This poll suggested by comel is about any physical health problems caused by reading manga. I do realize that this would be better suited as a survey (as then you could choose multiple options), but just choose the most prevalent health problem that you've had.

You can discuss this poll on our forum here:
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=25510

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related):
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Feelings on newer covers of manga volumes already released in the past
Choices:
Sure! An updated cover is always nice! - votes: 1555 (15.4%)
Only alright if the cover was made by the original author - votes: 4327 (43%)
No way. What was wrong with the old one? - votes: 1079 (10.7%)
Cover doesn't matter. It's the inside that does - votes: 3105 (30.8%)
There were 10066 total votes.
The poll ended: April 9th 2011

Sorry, I forgot to add a choice "Only if it's better"

Uh, no. Are there really people who get health problems from reading manga? It's the same thing as being an avid reader of any type of book.

Indirectly, I suppose.
I don't have any problems from reading manga, but i do from sitting in a chair for too long. Those problems being very stiff shoulders. <_<

Stiff shoulders, eye pain, headache etc but all these are problems caused by excessive use of computer. Be it manga reading or doing something else

I get a sore jaw from fast-paced stuff like Eyeshield 21. And reading Berserk gave me headaches. Generally it's the ones that are hard to put down.

I once couldn't move my jaw for a time period, because I would always read while resting my head on my hands. Evidently the pressure built up and it felt like my jaw was dislocated lol
