LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – The Cohort Study on Mobile Communications (COSMOS) is conducting the largest study ever on cellphone safety in Europe, but don't look for quick results. 

Experts with the COSMOS study are trying to recruit at least 250,000 cellphone users and they plan to track their cellphone use and general health for 30 years. 

Studies so far have not been that detailed since cell phones have only been widely used for the last decade, but the new British study will follow users' behavior in real time, looking at where and how they carry the phone and checking on any health conditions that appear along the way.
