Scott: When we're exposed to EMFs, our bodies are electrical at the base level anyway. When we talk about signals that go from our brain or even at the cellular level. When we're exposed to those, what is happening you know, even at the cellular level, or even bigger?
Dr. Elizabeth Plourde: Well, what's happening first of all is these holes in our cell membranes. And so that's causing calcium leakage. And calcium needs to be in a very narrow range in the body to do all of the things that it does. So that's changed. The calcium inside and outside the cell is no longer in balance, because of these holes, because they're leaking out. In fact they've done autopsies on autistic kids, and their brains, show all this calcium imbalance throughout their brain. So these electromagnetic radiations are, first of all, causing these holes. And then they cause oxidation damange. And that oxidation damage just raises havoc in the, at the level of the cell. It's breaking our DNA. It breaks both single and double stranded DNA.
So the difference between these radiations and nuclear ionizing... the nuclear and xray and all that is called ionizing and it breaks the DNA immediately. These radiations are slower as far as breaking the DNA. They vibrate the DNA until it finally does break. It still breaks, it just takes longer. And it's all cumulative. You know they put the lead apron on you in the dentist chair, because ionizing radiation's cumulative. Well, this is cumulative too. So the people who find me who are sick like I was... I became very sick from electromagnetic radiation. I'm very sensitive to it. And so, by the time they find me, they are very, very sick. And they've usually been around radiation a long time. Usually toxic, have some type of heavy metal poisoning or pesticides, or just eating today. All the pesticides in our food.
So they are the ones, the ones with the toxic load, and being around the radiation a long time, so the cumulitive level is totally raised, are the ones who are as sick as I was. What happened for me was that being in California, by the time the smart meter installations got into our area, into our city, a judge ruled it can't be mandatory. So we opted out. Call it a permanent opt out list. Called the electric company and said we wanted to be opted out. I educated our neighbors, got our neighbors on both sides to opt out. So when they started rolling out the smart meters on our street, I thought, hey, I'm fine, nothing around me. They started on Monday morning. Thursday afternoon I had a rash on my ankle, itchy rash. And I knew I had a doctor's appointment the next week so I thought I'll ask her what it is. And in a week, the rash was all the way up my leg. Totally solid up my leg. And she looked at it, she goes, well, it's some type of inflammation, it's not scabies, and she gave me some herbs to calm the skin down. Didn't help a bit. In 30 days I had a rash from head to toe. Head to toe. I could not pick up my cell phone. If I turned it on I'd get itchy, blood sores erupting on my ankle within seconds. I couldn't be on a computer anymore, itchy, bloody sores up my mouse arm. And I was only halfway through writing my first edition of my EMF Freedom radiation book, and I had to quit work. I couldn't work.
Then I also found out that if I was around anybod's cell phone it would feel like a sharp knife in me. Just horrible knives, ten people, ten knives, a hundred people, a hundred knives. I even quit going out in public, because it was so painful. And if I walked near my neighbors house that had a smart meter, knife. Same sharp knife.
And I found out about grounding. And grounding, I was going down to the beach and there weren't smart meters along the buildings along the beach yet. And I would lay on the beach and I'd feel better. I would recover. But then they started rolling out the smart meters on the buildings next to the beach and I'd lay on the beach and start feeling the knife again. So I'm definitely electromagnetic sensitive.
I've been on computers since they were invented, I've been a researcher so I've been on them 12-14 hours a day. When I have a book coming to publication, sometimes seven days a week even. So I have been on computers a lot. Plus I have a history of mercury poisoning. Fifteen years ago, I almost died from mercury from a dental, from the fillings in my teeth. So I know I have this mercury. Half of the people who find me have a history of mercury poisoning too. They know they've exposed to the mercury. And so what happens is that you open up all the cells, you open up the protective barriers and that mercury's, you know... c'mon in, you know, destroy me! I mean literally that's what's happening with electromagnetic radiation.
