Dr. Dufault is recognized as a biomedical expert in the area of heavy metal toxicity. She is considered a leading researcher in the area of epigenetics (gene-environment interactions) and has published a number of articles on autism and ADHD. As an independent researcher, Dr. Dufault has conducted several clinical trials that resulted in important findings. For example, we now know
the more processed food you eat, the higher your inorganic mercury exposures;
higher inorganic mercury levels in blood are related to the development of Type-2 diabetes in the American population;
if your child with autism or ADHD stops eating processed foods and learns to eat healthy, his behavior and focus will drastically improve and he may even lose his diagnosis;
reducing your processed food intake will improve your fasting glucose (sugar) level and, overtime, you may lose your diabetes diagnosis.
In 2021, Dr. Dufault and her team published an updated model to explain the development of autism and ADHD. This model shows how eating a diet high in processed foods can lead to the accumulation of lead and inorganic mercury in blood and body tissues. Processed foods have been found to contain heavy metals.
The U.S. Congress published two reports in 2021 about the heavy metals in the food supply. To read one of these reports, click on the image to the right. ->
