Does Your Mobile Phone Cause Cancer? Study Proposed to Examine Risk - MedIndia (press release)


Previous studies had been carried out on people who had already developed the illnesses, which led to suggestions that they suffered from an inherent "recall" bias.

Cosmos on the other hand will pick up diseases and symptoms as they arise and changes in people's health will be compared with their usage of mobile phones, taking into account both the number and duration of calls and the positioning of handsets.

Volunteers taking part in the study will be aged 18 to 69 and recruited through co-operating network operators.

Between 90,000 and 100,000 people are expected to participate in the UK, with others joining from Finland, the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark..

The total cost of the study for the first five years is estimated at 5-7 million pounds. The UK arm alone will cost 3.1million pounds, jointly funded by the Government and industry.
