The aim of this paper is to show that the existence of "cold" nuclear fusion in the Palladium lattice cannot be just an insignificant curiosity of nature since it derives from the peculiar interplay of electromagnetic fields and matter fields. Its understanding then requires the conceptual frame established by Quantum Electro Dynamics (QED). The expectedl resistance in accepting a conceptual breakthrough in our conception of condensed matter has certainly biased the attitude of the scientific community against this phenomenon. This mistrust and the initial difficulties in the definition of the significant experimental parameters contributed to create the myth of "cold fusion" irreproducibility. Here we sketch a conceptual path starting from the knowledge of unexplained facts known from decades to the proposal of a new field of research initiated by the experiments performed by Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons from 1984 to 1989.
