An international team of experts now warns that excessive use of Smart-phones are forever changing our physiology. There’s nothing new in this though. It is a well-established fact that cultural advancements and trends, if significant enough, can force the human body into a speedy evolution to accommodate new practices. Like the Chinese binding of women feet in the 10th century for example. A custom which even today causes their women to topple over when touched by the slightest gust of wind. No. It is the speed with which these changes are taking place that has the scientific community worried. A worry fueled when a recent study revealed that the constant swiping motions associated with Smart-phones has made our thumbs grow to be a whopping 15% bigger in average.

"I don’t see why the digit should stop growing if we continue down this path and we could all very easily end up looking like cartoon characters unless we apply another method fast.

Dr. Alban and his colleagues have been working on alternatives for some time, unfortunately without any marketable breakthroughs thus far. “We did try to implement an eye-operated system like the one fighter-pilots use, but reports came back saying it rendered people looking shifty. So we still have a lot of work ahead of us to prevent the cartoon scenario.” said the concerned Doctor.
