All of our cells have an electrical charge or frequency. You are probably familiar with EKG which checks the electrical activity of your heart or an EEG test which is used to find problems related to the electrical activity of the brain. Now you have the idea! Free radicals and the constant bombardment of electromagnetics that we use are making us ill.
