Layne Seed Larson & Egle Jankauskaite, Facebook asked:
Can mobile phones really lead to cancer and other diseases?
We put this question to Professor Paul Elliott from Imperial College in London..
Paul - We don't have a biological mechanism to explain why mobile phones might cause cancer. If you like, the study is taking a long term view because we don't have a mechanism. As well as looking at cancers, we’ll be looking at other neurological degenerative diseases such as motor neuron disease, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson’s disease, and cerebrovascular disease.
