I had a quick look out of boredom....

http://www.x-ion.org/articles.html#q26

They don't straight out and out lie on the page I read - but it is a
little disingenuous. They go on at length about the dangers of cellphones
- and say that the radiation produced is non-ionizing.  (And hence their
magic product, even if it did what it claimed - would not protect you, by
their own admission.) As regards cellphones, the key part is in the last
sentence of the answer to the last question.

as regards this claim, one wants to hear a little more... 
> This will help minimize the ill affects of EMF 

In general they trade on creating fear by citing problems with the primary
effects of EMF, suggesting a practical solution (put distance between you
and the source) and tag on their magic-toy to protect against "secondary
effects". 

Sleazy.
