Smartphones have become such an integral part of our culture that it's nearly impossible to go anywhere without them. As a result, people have become so sucked in to their mobile devices, that our bodies have begun to change.

Researchers from the University of the Sunshine Coast in Australia examined hundreds of X-rays of human skulls, and found that 40% of people aged between 18-30 years old that are on their phones more 4.5 hours per day have begun to grow bone spurs at the base of their skulls.

These bone spurs are typically found in the elderly and are usually the result of poor posture. But when more younger people develop "text neck", which is caused by poor neck posture caused by excessive phone use, it can lead to sharp pains, headaches, and the bone spurs could potentially grow out through the skin.
