Could cellphone use be causing people to grow HORNS?
Controversial research paper highlights smartphone risk
Alex Reid here with your Monday roundup.
The top story is a HECK of an attention grabber.
It's about a controversial new research paper that's grabbing headlines all over.
Cell phone use among young people is distorting their bodies so much that it's causing the growth of HORNS.
By constantly having their necks at an unnatural angle, they are literally forcing horn-like growths to emerge from the back of their heads.
Bony growths called external occipital protuberances — which are found in the middle of the back of skull, above where our neck muscles attach — are popping up more often than expected in people between the ages of 18 and 30.
So is this true?
Could the use of cell phones really be causing HORNS to grow out of the heads of young people?
Not everyone thinks so.
In fact, we're seeing statements of "probably not true," according to other scientists, who have reviewed the paper with skepticism.
This is why you always have to seek multiple sources.
While this one may be unlikely, some outlandish headlines turn out to be completely true.
And cell phones still have the potential for plenty of danger.
