Not frying, microwaving...

Cellular phones work on similar frequencies to Microwave ovens, so do DECT cordless phones and WiFi routers...

"Cellular phones work on similar frequencies to Microwave ovens, so do DECT cordless phones and WiFi routers..."

Two points to make here:

First, most people don't hold four mobile phones against their head.

Second, the signal output of a DECT phone or a WiFi router is very much lower than a mobile phone and most people don't sit a WiFi router on top of their head while using it.

And most people's skulls are a little thicker than a pop-corn kernel.

I made no mention that phones etc were unsafe, just that they all worked on the same frequencies...

Proof to back my statement up:

Despite the scientific impossibility of the stunt – mobile phones do not produce anywhere near enough heat to cook popcorn....

Not another mobile phone horror story.

You'll be telling me alien spacecraft have visited earth next.

All popcorn to be taken with a pinch of salt!
