Science says it's true, so it must be.
No, it's not a joke. Researchers found disturbing changes in some people's skulls.
here's a new concern for both yourself and your children: Too much smartphone use might possibly alter the bone structure of your skull, new research reveals. It could possibly cause pointy protuberances to grow on either side of the base of the skull--what the Washington Post and others call "horns." There's no need to worry that you'll wind up looking like Hellboy--for one thing, x-rays show this new bone growth points down, not up. But there's plenty of reason to worry about the long-term effect constant smartphone use is having on your skeletal system and your skull. It might be especially harmful to today's children who sometimes start playing with smartphones or tablets before they're out of diapers.

God damn it, I spent thousands of dollars having these silicone horns surgically put in place, when all I needed to do was use the phone more.
But.. does this mean I'll get horns on my horns??
