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.
