Summary  Dr Shandley took a novel approach to investigate the mercury-autism hypothesis. Her studies unearthed conflicting results. Contrary to previous biological studies, autistic children did not demonstrate a pattern of mercury toxicity. However, in a world first study, Dr Shandley found that the rate of autism among children with a family history of mercury sensitivity was 6-7 times higher than the general population.
