Each year, Americans consume food products that contain heavy metals, pesticides, and harmful additives—with the blessing of the FDA. Why is this happening and why haven’t you heard about it? In Unsafe at Any Meal, Dr. Renee Dufault, former food investigator for the Food and Drug Administration, provides startling answers.
While at the FDA, Dr. Dufault discovered toxic mercury residue in the plumbing systems of food manufacturing plants and in processed foods sold in supermarkets. When Dr. Dufault revealed these disturbing findings to her superiors, she was told to stop her investigation. She retired early and devoted her energy to making the public aware of the insidious dangers that contaminate our food. To expose what still seems to be a well-kept secret by the FDA, she has written Unsafe at Any Meal to provide consumers with the information they need to know.
Dr. Dufault joins us this episode to discuss her incredible career, findings, and book.
