The latest “news” trending is that horns are growing out of your skull because of your phone. Research by two biomechanists  hypothesize that overuse of handheld devices has led to young people developing tiny “horns” at the back of their skull. While it’s true that unusual bony growths may be seen at higher frequencies than expected in younger generations, there’s zero data suggesting phones are to blame. So, we’re not growing horns — but we may be growing unusual spurs at the back of our skull in our youth.  The word “hypothesize” is key here.

Here’s the bottom line:

We’re doing whatever we need to do to cope with this additional stress on our skulls because we’re looking down all the time now. No ” horns”. Just bad posture.
