Mobile phones and growing horns

There has been a flood of news articles over the last few days in regard to claims that mobile phones are causing people to grow “horns” such as this one.

However, it appears that the claims are false and were based on incorrect or non-existent analysis as thie article discloses.

Looks like a lot of publications including The Washington Post will have egg on their faces.

Another article regarding the “growing horns” story in which it is claimed that the author sells sells his own Thoracic Pillows and has trademarked the name.

A snip at a mere $195 each or save by buying 4 for only $740.

I thought this deserving of it’s own topic in our ‘Is it true’ category. Nice work chasing down the details @Fred123.

Growing horns! :joy: Although, I suppose it could be a selling point for some :smiling_imp:
