Usefulness of GFCI Outlets for Reducing EMF

I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to this stuff, but it seems to me that GFCI outlets can be installed in a room, and then used to effectively cut off the AC electric fields by pressing their "TEST" buttons. Would this be a viable alternative to flipping the fuse for the room at the breaker? Are there any other downsides worth knowing when it comes to GFCI outlets?

GFI outlets can produce dirty electricity, yes.  You'd be better using GFI breakers, perhaps, so that the electricity is cutoff at the panel.  I'm not sure if GFI outlets/breakers will wear out if tripped on a regular basis like that.  There are better ways to cutoff the electricity at the panel though.
