Harry Potter Keeps Children Safer

My teenage daughter called this amusing story to my attention: when Harry Potter books have been released, children's accident statistics have declined markedly on the following weekends...children are too busy reading about Harry and friends to be active and injured at normal rates.

Last night I also saw this blurb about Harry Potter and fewer children visiting the ER. It didn't mention earlier reports about more children visiting their GPs because of headaches and neck or arm strains. So I wonder if the increase in visits to GPs offsets the fewer visits to the ER?

I hadn't heard about the headaches, that's an amusing flip side to the story :).
