People Are Growing Weird Bone Spikes On Their Skull, Smart Phones To Blame?

  • 204 Views


The time we spend scrolling up and down through the news feed on Instagram, or just scrolling around Facebook to see what's up, can have an effect on our skulls bone structure, developing a weird bony spike just above the neck. This sounds really strange and blood-chilling, but a recent study done by David Shahar, a health scientist at the University of The Sunshine Coast, Australia, and his co-author has proven just that.

This unusual change in human physiology is especially represented in the younger crowd, as we all know, their use of smartphones and similar technologies in recent years has been through the roof. So, as these kinds of things usually go, the ones to blame are non-other than the parents. But don't feel down yet, there was no chance anybody could have seen this coming and this little change in the human skull, for now, doesn't seem to have a negative effect on the subjects of Shahar's study.

For someone that is into this kind of stuff, the bony skull bump is known as an external occipital protuberance, and sometimes it is so large, you can feel it under your fingers by pressing them on the base of your skull.

Looking at 218 radiographs of the lateral cervical spine, of people between 18 and 30-years-old they have come to discover, 41% of the group had the lump, with 10% having a spike at least 20mm long (anything above 5mm was considered lump, meaning the skull had developed an external occipital protuberance).

The health scientist says the lumps are a bit larger within the male skull, and slightly smaller within the skulls of his female subjects.

The cause-and-effect is probably the constant bending of one's neck at an uncomfortable angle to look at smart devices, but this has yet to be identified.

These strange bony spikes are likely here to stay, but luckily rarely cause medical issues, and if next time you want to look at funny cat photos, or babies having a fun time, think twice and improve your posture, and you will have no problem, the intriguing scientist says.
