Renee Dufault earned her Doctorate of Health Education (D.H.Ed.) degree from AT Still University in Missouri. She began her career in the 70’s working as a medical laboratory technician in the U.S. Army. After serving in the Army she earned a B.S. degree with an Environmental Science concentration at the University of California Davis campus. She then served in the Navy as an Industrial Hygiene Officer for two years before transferring to the US Public Health Service (PHS) to work as an Environmental Health Officer. During her 16 year PHS career, she worked at the National Institutes of Health, Environmental Protection Agency, Shoshone-Paiute Tribes and the Food and Drug Administration where she provided expertise in the areas of toxicology, environmental health and industrial hygiene. She retired early from the uniformed service after 20 years in 2008, to publish her findings of mercury in high fructose corn syrup and continue her research with collaborators on the role toxic food ingredients play in the development of disease conditions. Her most popular article to date was published in the Clinical Epigenetics journal (Dufault et al., 2012) and explores the gene-environment interactions responsible for the autism epidemic in the U.S. – over 150,000 downloads to date.
