now one company has created a 3d model of a future human, based on some of these scientific predictions – and the result is truly horrifying.

 

dubbed “mindy”, the human of 2100 has a hunched back, caused by hours sitting in front of a computer monitor at the office and craning her neck to look at smartphones.

spending hours looking down at your phone strains your neck and throws your spine off balance,” said caleb backe, a health and wellness expert at maple holistics.

mindy’s adaptations don’t stop there. her skull has thickened, helping to protect her brain from radiofrequency radiation emitted from smartphones – which some belief can have serious health implications.

 

meanwhile, her hand has permanently molded into a claw-like grip and her elbow is bent to 90 degrees, due to sustained periods spent holding a smartphone.

kasun ratnayake from the university of toledo suggests this radical evolutionary development could limit the amount of harmful light our eyes are exposed to.

 

while the mindy model is extreme, and designed to shock, it provides an interesting visual representation of a growing body of scientific research.

 


overexposure to technology can sometimes come to the detriment of our health.

 

while the benefits of technology to individuals and businesses are too great to ignore, it’s worth evaluating your usage to ensure your health isn’t being damaged in the long-term.

these are just some of the shocking footage captured on a reporter’s hidden camera when she went undercover at a branch of tealand in beijing. 

 

the shop which specializes in milk tea is part of a chain originating from hangzhou, china. its signature items include oolong latte and sesame and brown sugar bubble milk tea, along with other fruit-based drinks.

 

but the outlet has since been forced shut pending investigations following the release of the incriminating video by btv. 

 

staff at the shop were caught on camera using fruits that were rotten, not washing utensils after they were used, and also watering down their “100 percent” fruit juices. 

 

when asked if the overripe mangos that the manager was cutting into cups could still be eaten, the manager’s reply was to freeze them for a while so that they won’t smell.

 

a fresher mango was also cut and mixed into the other pieces of fruit in an attempt to ‘cover’ the rotten pieces.

more shockingly, when the reporter wanted to dispose of the juices that had collected on the chopping board, the manager stopped her and poured it back into a cup instead, presumably for it to be sold to an unsuspecting customer.

 

the manager’s unorthodox practices have also irked other members of the staff.

a worker is overheard complaining that when she tried to swop out a beverage for something fresher as the customer was a child, she was stopped by the manager.

 

she added: “my conscience pricked me,” while another chimed in, “it’s a feeling of guilt“.

 

that’s not all. the hidden camera also revealed how cut fruits like kiwi were left in the fridge for up to three days despite their blackened appearance, and unused tea was also kept in the fridge to be sold the next day.

tellingly, another co-worker is heard saying in the recording that she used to love drinking milk tea, but wouldn’t touch one now “even if it’s free”.

authorities in china are now investigating over 30 outlets of tealand.

 

the company also posted an apology on its website and on weibo, stating that its actions are “unforgivable” and that it’s willing to accept any legal ramifications.
