I was informed this during my RAD HAZ training with MIT back in yr 2001 and re-iterated again at my certificate renewal in 2004. They were very worried about (at the time in Australia) Optus having unlimited free mobile calls after 7pm at night to 7am morning, as a lot of people were experiencing this effect after being on the phone for 2-3 hours. Plus the uncomfortable "hot" feeling on the side of the head above the ear.
No jokes here mate, i take my job seriously. MIT recommend to use all mobile phones in moderation, and not to have phone calls lasting over 10 minutes.
