Garden City Park, NY:  Since taking an early retirement in 2008 from the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), Dr. Renee Joy Dufault has been on a mission. She has worked tirelessly to spread the message far and wide that currently FDA-approved levels of mercury and other heavy metals found in the highly-processed foods at the heart of the Standard American Diet (SAD, aptly) are endangering the lives of adults and children alike.

After she founded the Food Ingredient and Health Research Institute (FIHRI) in 2010, Dr. Dufault has continued to point out the alarming role that mercury in high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) has played in the growing rates of autism, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer's across the U.S. in the past few decades.

Now all her hard work and commitment has led to Dr. Dufault being invited to write an article—together with co-writer and director/founder of the Institute of Neurotoxicology and Neurological Disorders Dr. Steven G. Gilbert—on this very topic for the world-renowned magazine Scientific American  first published today (Oct. 23, 2017). The article, entitled "Why Does Autism Impact Boys More Often Than Girls?" (click here to read), uses clear scientific evidence to prove a correlation between mercury levels in highly-processed foods and autism along with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Long recognized since its first issue in August 1845 as an iconic publication within the field of science, Scientific American shares vital health information that Dr. Dufault explores even more fully in her first book Unsafe at Any Meal (Square One).  To order a copy of Dr. Dufault's book, feel free to click here.
