Is one of your thumbs bigger than the other? Apparently, your smartphone could be the reason why

Excerpt from this article:

New research by the O2 Mobile Life Report claims that people who use their phones a lot may have seen the thumb in their dominant hand become bigger by as much as 15%.

The study also found those who noticed the most changes are young adults aged 18 to 34 – with one in eight developing “swiper’s thumb” as a result of excessive swiping and using large handsets.

It seems a third of mobile phone users felt their bodies had changed because of smartphone use and many said they had developed an indent in their little finger from holding their phones in a certain way.
