  • Cell Phones Might Be Causing Horns to Grow on Young People's Skulls StudyMore

This includes transformation in nearly every aspect of our lives from the smallest of things of spending our free time traveling or working. It turns out that the consequences of smartphone use could be physical, too. In fact, the exact nature of change, or transformation is quite surprising.

A second study of 1,000 people found the unusual growths were larger and more common with young adults that with the older population, suggesting they are a relatively recent phenomenon.

We understand that this development may be troubling and surprising at the same time.

Dr Shahar explained: "Shifting the head forwards results in the transfer of the head's weight from the bones of the spine to the muscles at the back of the neck and head". Taking a look at the findings of the research, there seems to be a valid reason behind this.

Researchers at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, have documented the prevalence of bone spurs at the back of the skull among young adults.

Since the growths are being found mainly in young people due to tilting the head forward, the researchers claim the constant use of phones and other hand-held devices are to blame.

He said disc problems were well known to occur in people who spend a great deal of time looking down with their necks bent, surgeons among them.

In a University of the Sunshine Coast news release this week, Shahar said such large "horn-like" bone growths used to be exclusive to older individuals as a outcome of skeletal load and posture. As a result, you get these horn-like spurs.

Or at least that's what scientists are suggesting after research on the emergence of "enlarged external occipital protuberances" (EEOP) amongst young people.

To be exact, this indicates a shift in the posture of the body in young people.

Recent articles by the BBC and The Washington Post have cited a 2018 study in the journal Scientific Reports saying that these bone growths have been turning up more often than expected in people aged 18 to 30.

The unusual formations have captured the attention of Australian media, and have variously been dubbed "head horns" or "phone bones" or "spikes" or "weird bumps". The finding was that poor posture was causing the spurs and the researchers were only making an educated guess based on the signs and said that future research could shed better light on the matter. In simple terms, it means that the head and the neck of the person are not in the proper configuration. And within a matter of days, headlines from across the globe reported that teenagers were growing horns.
