Kids with Horns?




Horns are growing in the next generation!


Yes, you are hearing it right.

Reports are out that new research in biomechanics suggest that hornlike spikes are growing in the back of young people's skull. These bone spurs are the result of the forward tilt of the head due to the forward tilt of the head. As a result of looking down on mobile phones, the action shift weight from the spine to the muscles at the back of the head, causing bone growth in the connecting tendons and ligaments.


This eventually lead to hornlike feature jutting out from the skull, just above the neck. Ewe!

 According to evidence found in a research at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, the frequent use of mobile devices is changing our physiology. These bone spurs are more prevalent in young adults as they are the most frequent users of mobile devices.
The research is not set in stone. There are doubts that this study is anything but conclusive.



Base on the studies of 1200 X Rays in Queensland, one-third of those have already shown such bone spurs. In young adults, it is about 40%. Today, with young children as young as babies being exposed to mobile phones usage, it would be much worse for the next generation. The good news is that these bone spurs are not visible given their size. However, with evolution, you cannot rule out the consequences of it. It will bring a whole new definition to the term ' Horny Kids'.


The best advice is to reduce screen time and head outdoors instead!

Would we need to create Loki head accessories in the future?

Without a change in the way we use mobile phones, it may be a reality in the not so distant future...
