I've seen the falsified study in California misquoted to say it proved 
"cell phone" damage.

The study uses the term "cellular damage" in the context of 
meaning damage to cells.

The most amazing part is that study was the only link between 
cellular (meaning in a cell, not a cellphone) damage and non-
ionizing radiation besides what cooking the cell would cause.

Cooking the cell is not accumulated over months of exposure, it is 
a short term "ding" and it's ready to serve type of damage.
