Some strange new research out of Australia is making smartphone users sit up straight.
The study published in a science journal suggests that excessive smartphone use, particularly among younger people, is causing horn-like structures to form on their skulls. 400 people between the ages of 18 and 86 were found to have bone spurs protruding from the back of their skulls, believed to be from poor posture associated with looking down at their phones.
The bone spurs don't cause any pain and do not require any treatment. But if they grow to be larger, they could potentially cause some problems. (USA Today)
