When you study antenna and wave propogation you’ll understand that the mobile phone only acts as 1/2 of the antenna. Basically, it uses your body, and your head, to be the ground and to provide the second half of the antenna, causing a reflected image.
Hard to explain without piccies, but none the less, regardless of how far away you have the mobile phone, it is using something as the ground, and hence as the virtual other 1/2 of the antenna. Usually the mobile phone is at your head, or somewhere on your body, hence it is being used.
The vast majority of studies indicate that at least some temperature rise occurs when using mobile phones. Unrelated studies have shown that cells die very quickly above 45 degrees celsius. How long do you have to hold a transmitter to your head to increase the temperature to that should be the question we are asking.
