Due to excessive use of cell phone young people are growing horn in their skull

Researchers from Australia found small build-ups of bone in the back of the heads which are the result of bad posture. It’s believed that twisting around a telephone can move weight to the back of the head, resulting in the growth of bone in nearby ligaments and tendons.

Chiropractor David Shahar, first author of a paper discussing the problem, told the Washington Post: ‘You may say it looks like a bird’s beak, a horn, a hook, These formations take a long time to develop, so that means that those individuals who suffer from them probably have been stressing that area since early childhood.’

Shahar and colleagues have written two pieces of research about the horns, which are now being discussed online thanks to a recent article on the BBC with the headline: ‘How modern life is transforming the human skeleton.’

Their most recent research was published a year ago and warned of ‘sustained aberrant postures associated with the emergence and extensive use of hand-held contemporary technologies,

The lumps are called enlarged external occipital protuberances and are not harmful in themselves, although they are‘a portent of something nasty going on elsewhere, a sign that the head and neck are not in the proper configuration’.

Shahar and his team discovered horns in 41% of the adult’s grown-ups they evaluated, with men more impacted than ladies.

The small formations were more than 10 millimeters in size. If you have the horns, you can probably feel them by reaching around to the bottom of the back of your head. The researchers advised smartphone users to pay attention to their posture in order to keep the horns at bay.
