Are Young People Growing Horns Due To Smart Phone Use?


The horn like growths were discovered by Australian scientists after examining hundreds of x-rays from people ages 18-30. They found that half had developed bone growths. This phenomenon is usually only seen in very elderly, hunched over individuals.

The theory is that because we are always staring down at our devices, we are developing these growths. Though other changes in human activity that have been slow and over time, such as reading, might be to blame for this.
