Can You Really Grow a Horn From Too Much Phone Use?

The Washington Post published an article this week that everyone is talking about... Are our phones causing us to grow horns in the back of our heads?

It sounds ridiculous, but it's not too far off.

New research suggests that hunching over your phone could produce horn-like growths at the back of the skull, just above the neck. It's been known for many years that cellphone use can lead to so-called tech neck, which is caused by contorting the head to look at your handheld device. It can also cause poor posture, neck and back pain, and headaches. To solve the issue, there are simple exercises you can do, and make sure to always keep your phone at eye level and don't look down.

And just to be clear, this research doesn't clarify that the condition is specifically caused by looking at phones. You have the same posture looking at a phone as you do when you look down to read a book!
