As our research continues forward, our findings are published in peer reviewed journals indexed by PubMed at the National Library of Medicine. Our most recent article was published on July 20, 2021 in the World Journal of Methodology.This review article is titled "Connecting inorganic mercury and lead measurements in blood to dietary sources of exposure that may impact child development." We describe all of the analytical methods that can be used to detect inorganic mercury and/or lead in a child's blood. The author of the analytical methods section actually works as a chemist at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration!! In this recent article, we also provide guidelines for diagnosing and treating the symptoms of children diagnosed with autism and ADHD.
We published our Fort Peck Diabetes Prevention Study findings on May 5, 2015 in the Integrative Molecular Medicine journal. This article provides our clinical trial results along with our analysis of the Center for Disease Control's (CDC's) NHANES dataset. We report that total blood mercury levels may be influenced by the dietary intake of highly processed foods, and lower inorganic blood mercury levels are associated with lower fasting glucose levels. This is a landmark finding of the role of inorganic mercury exposure in the development of type-2 diabetes. The name of this article is Blood inorganic mercury is directly associated with glucose levels in the human population and may be linked to processed food intake.

Our most popular review article to date was published in the Clinical Epigenetics Journal on April 10, 2012 and provides a model to explain the most likely factors involved in the development of autism. The article is the most accessed article in the Clinical Epigenetics Journal with over 159,000 downloads worldwide. According to Google Scholar, the article has 79 citations thus far. It can be accessed free of charge at PubMed or the following link -> Macroepigenetic approach to identify the factors responsible for the autism epidemic in the United States.
Our second most popular article on the finding of mercury in high fructose corn syrup was published as a commentary in the Environmental Health journal. It has been cited 119 times according to Google Scholar and is one of the most widely accessed articles of all time with 158,000 downloads recorded by the journal. You may download it at no charge at PubMed or the following link ->"Mercury from chlor-alkali plants: measured concentrations in food product sugar."
Our strategy is to publish only in peer reviewed public acess journals where articles can be downloaded by the consumer at no charge. Gone are the days of medical research conducted in secrecy. We believe the consumer has a right to know what is known by the "experts."
To help facilitate a smooth transition for the food industry as efforts are made to change the way food is processed, we periodically write articles for the trade journals. For example, in November 2011, we published a piece called The Clean Label Push: What Does It All Mean in the Food Manufacturing Journal. You can access that article by clicking on this link The Clean Label Push
