Science says you can now develop horns behind your skull for excessive phone use

The excessive use of smartphones in the world is growing at an exponential rate. Some can't even control themselves while using it, they call while driving, play games on the road and do things that put life at risk. You would even find a 4-year old child operating high tech devices in the tier 1 countries.

Science now says Younger generations seem to be developing horns in the back of their skulls due to the excessive use of smartphones and tablets.

Earlier this week, Two Australian researchers made the bizarre discovery while examining hundreds of X-rays of people aged between 18 and 30, finding almost half had developed bone growths.

This bone growth was described  “horn-like”  by the researchers.
The horn-like skull growths raise serious concerns about what extended use of phones is doing to young people’s bodies.

The findings by Dr David Shahar and Associate Professor Mark Sayers at The University of the Sunshine Coast flew under the radar when they were published at the end of last year, two years after their initial warning about the trend.

Dr Shahar said the study looked at 218 X-ray images of people aged between 18 and 30 and found 41 per cent had developed a “horn-like” bony lump at the back of their heads, ranging in size from 10 millimetres to 30 millimetres.

Additional testing, including MRI scans, ruled out the possibility that the bone growths were the result of genetics or injury.

What can we say about this new discovery?
