Smartphone: dents on the finger, wrinkles in the skin?

Waking up with the cell phone alarm clock, driving to work with Google Maps, ordering lunch online, communicating with friends and colleagues via Whatsapp, planning the evening with the help of an app: life without a smartphone is unimaginable for many people. However, few people realize the consequences of this dependency.

According to a report on “The Huffington Post”, numerous users on Twitter claim to have discovered an effect of the smartphone on their bodies that is clearly visible: the smartphone finger. This was apparently triggered by a message from the Japanese mobile operator NTT Docomo, which warned on social media not to support the bottom of the smartphone with your little finger, as this could lead to deformation. As a result, thousands of users posted on Twitter who had already noticed this deformation of their little finger and shared photos of it. The phenomenon soon had a name: “Smartphone Pinky” (pinky is the colloquial word for the little finger in the USA).

What’s really behind the smartphone finger

Martin Langer, Head of Hand Surgery at Münster University Hospital, confirmed to the Huffington Post that prolonged strain can indeed lead to the little finger becoming deformed. The professor warned in “The Huffington Post” of other effects of the smartphone: “I see bigger problems than a crooked little finger in the eyes (short-sightedness), the neck (cervical spine problems due to constantly bending the head forward) and in accidents due to inattention.” On average, many people activate their cell phone up to 53 times a day. According to a report on, this has consequences for the condition of the skin: constantly staring at the cell phone at a 45 degree angle leads to so-called “tech neck”. When the head is tilted, the skin on the neck is constantly wrinkled. As the proportion of collagen in this area is relatively low, wrinkles form here particularly quickly. Writing WhatsApp messages, uploading Instagram photos or reading emails therefore has a direct effect on the condition of the skin.

Deafness due to inattention

In another study, British scientists investigated the question of why we tend to ignore acoustic signals from our surroundings when reading – with the result that this is due to the limited capacity of our brain. More precisely, according to the “Journal of Neuroscience”, the same neuronal resources are apparently used for hearing and seeing, so that the processing of other sensory stimuli is suppressed. According to scientists at University College London, when the brain was scanned using magnetoencephalography, it was found that with strong visual concentration, sounds were not simply ignored or filtered out, but were not heard in the first place, i.e. the sounds never reached the test subjects’ consciousness. While this phenomenon is harmless in most everyday situations, it can sometimes have life-threatening consequences in others, such as in road traffic, when warning traffic noises are no longer perceived. Incidentally, the phenomenon of attention blindness was investigated by researchers at Harvard University back in 1999. As part of the “Gorilla in our midst” study, they showed that test subjects who were distracted by other things were no longer able to perceive a person in a gorilla costume who was in their midst.

More and more children and young people

Dents on fingers or skin problems are one thing – serious health consequences of mobile phone technology are another. The use of cell phones has increased enormously since the mid-1990s, not only among adolescents and young adults, but also increasingly in the 8 to 10 age group in recent years. How risky is this in terms of brain tumors? Prof. Dr. J. Freihorst from Aalen (Germany) interviewed in the monthly journal Kinderheilkunde 2015 (163,1), SpringerMedizinThe German health authority, the German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BfArM), has published a report on the current study situation with regard to the risks of mobile telephony for children and young people and advises caution: “Even though the data situation on the risk of high-frequency electromagnetic radiation is still unsatisfactory and contradictory, current studies do indicate that at least frequent and long-term use of cell phones is associated with an increased risk of developing malignant brain tumors … In any case, it seems advisable to limit exposure to high-frequency electromagnetic radiation as much as possible, especially in childhood, if it cannot already be avoided completely.”

Mobile phone-free “white zones” – unreal or legally required?

Despite all the warnings, the widespread distribution and implementation of current wireless technologies is being driven forward in this country. Internationally, on the other hand, the consequences of mobile phone radiation have long been the subject of social debate, for example among our French neighbors, as can be read on There they speak of mobile radio-free, so-called “white zones”. In view of the flood of new wireless networks and radiation sources and the increase in the number of people across the population suffering from the disease, such protection zones are very topical: even the former head of development at mobile phone manufacturer NOKIA now suffers from ‘electrohypersensitivity’. Nevertheless, radio-free or radio-reduced zones are roundly rejected as unrealistic in Germany, for example (see also report on

Turnaround in evolution?

Even if perhaps not meant entirely seriously, the facts presented here raise the question of whether an entire generation of smartphone users is growing up who consider it the most normal thing in the world to have their lowered gaze constantly glued to a display in front of their nose. Does the constant “downward stare” of the “smombies” or the “head-down generation” mean a turnaround in evolution, in which the upright gait could be replaced by an increasingly downward-curved physique?

At least suppress the smartphone’s high frequencies

Even if using a smartphone can lead to postural damage, wrinkles and attention deficits, it should not be overlooked that our health is much more at risk from high-frequency radiation. Each individual can find a personal remedy by using a BioPatch or similar products to suppress interference on their smartphone. This not only relieves the strain on your own organism, but also that of everyone else in the smartphone’s radiation field.

Generate a harmonic oscillation field

The law of resonance states that no resonances can occur in an oscillating field with oscillations whose frequencies lie outside those of the field. In other words: In a harmonic oscillation field, artificial radiation has no effect, regardless of who generates it, whether it comes from a neighbor or a nearby mobile phone mast. The mobile products from Swiss Harmony (BioRing, BodyCard, BioBracelet and the BioPatch) harmonize the human body or a smartphone, depending on the application, by transmitting the harmonic vibration as information to the energy system of the person or smartphone. This means that artificially created radiation fields can no longer resonate.

Swiss Harmony: Protection against harmful radiation

Products from Swiss Harmony for harmonizing houses and apartments ensure that the electricity that supplies a building with electricity receives a different message. They transmit the information of the visible light spectrum to the passing current via the resonance path, which in turn distributes it throughout the entire effective range of the circuit. The electromagnetic field of the apartment or house becomes a harmonious field. In-house WLAN transmitters, cell phones or cordless phones are interference-free because they are connected to the harmonic current field and therefore emit the same harmonic information.
