Thanks to iPhones and smartphones in general, chiropractic and nail salons may be the best occupations to carry someone further into the 21st century? How so? Look at all those humans hunched over their iPhones. Chiropractic schools must be flooded with students.
What about nail salons? Humans already use them to polish fingernails and toenails– mani pedi is a thing. Now we’re growing horns– thanks to all those necks scrunched over viewing iPhone screens.
Get out your dictionary because the words are about to get longer. David Shahar explains:
Prominent exostosis projecting from the occipital squama more substantial and prevalent in young adult than older age groups
Put another way, your iPhone will cause head horns.
OK, it might cause head horns, and the horns might not come out of your forehead, but the back of your skull. Regardless, it ain’t pretty.
We have recently reported on the development of prominent exostosis emanating from this enthesis in over 40% of young adults’ skulls (18–30-year-old, n = 218).
Sounds like the typical iPhone user to me.
What’s going on? A horny growth that seems to be produced by people who scrunch their heads over while viewing their iPhones. OK, the same could be happening to Android sufferers, but you get the idea.
What’s really going on?
The development of EEOP may be attributed to, and explained by, the extensive use of screen-based activities by individuals of all ages, including children, and the associated poor posture. Musculoskeletal disorders related to poor posture while using computers and tablets have been investigated extensively and were identified as a risk factor for the development of related symptoms at the neck, shoulders and forearms.
External occipital protuberance. Abbreviations are allowed.
Apple, those scientific scientists are looking at you. Android, too, but most of those who tote Samsung devices are horny already anyway.
So, the way I understand iPhone usage and scientific study tells me that iPhones are bad for your health in ways we may not fully understand, but certainly not good for our heads. Brains, too (nearly 80-percent of all apps are games; and we know those will destroy humankind by how much the degrade thinking, right?).
