Have You Ever Gotten Sick from Using a Gadget?

There are lots of diseases and health issues for humans to worry about in general, and yet we tend to create more of them as time goes on. Lead poisoning, cancer from tanning beds, lots of stuff from smoking. And now that we're addicted to gadgets it was only a matter of time before the health effects starting showing.

Terrible posture, severely burned thighs, nomophobia (no-mobile-phone phobia), and scrotal hyperthermia are plaguing us!
