Throughout the years of adolescence into young adulthood, a common favorite past time of many is to spend a sufficient amount of time in front of a screen. However, researchers have conducted extensive research and have found that it can contribute to detrimental effects on the bone health of an individual. In a case study a group of researches challenged the theory of the correlation between the higher amount of screen time and the bone strength of an adolescent. The researchers conducing the analyzation specifically separated the participants by certain lifestyle choices and other numerous dividing factors. The research and questions were gathered over the course of a couple of years until a conclusion was reached. The data proved that men had a larger bone density loss compared to women; the findings also verified that more time spent in a chair or couch, the higher the bone density loss was. In comparison, girls who spent greater time in front of a screen displayed an increase in bone density and the girls who were more active displayed a loss in density. Researchers explained that hormones play a large roll in the bone density and fat distribution between males and females.
