Mobile Bones!

Mobile phones are often carried in pants pocket or on the belt. Using dual X-ray absorptiometry, researchers compared bone density on the side where men wore their phones vs the opposite side. The men carried their phones for an average of 15 hours a day & used cell phones for an average of 6 yrs. The results showed a slight reduction in bone density of the pelvis on the side where the men carried their phones. The researchers point out the men were relatively young (average 32 yrs) & that further bone weakening may occur with longer follow-up.
