What are some good resources debunking Dr. Pall?

So in discussions about cell phone radiation, Martin Pall's name keeps popping up, with claims about how non-ionising radiation causes everything from cancer to autism, and I haven't been able to find any good sources debunking him. Anyone have any good resources they would like to share ?

Sorry, all I can contribute is that I thought it said 'Dr. Phil'

Thanks for the links, but I wondered if anyone had something about Pall specifically .

Do you watch a youtube channel called 'Sir Sic The Social Inequality Crusader'? The vast majority of his content is debunking exactly that sort of thing (miracle cures, universal bad thing causers etc.) that he finds online so he may well know about him.

I would say he's your absolute best bet for knowing something about this Pall guy; people like him really are his bread and butter, and he covers some pretty obscure ones as well; hard to believe they're real people at times but they are - we're talking 'living on sunlight' and 'microwaves are the cause of all the world's problems' level stuff

There's also someone called Myles Power, but he tends to debunk quite mainstream quackery whereas Sir Sic seems to very much focus on the obscure ones.

There is a little research that seems to support at least some of Dr. Palls positions, but it's a long way from being conclusive. It certainly merits more study.

This makes me quite curious now, that's an interesting journey. Also, the name makes much more sense if he was just a right wing commentator.
