This morning, a group of agricultural biotechnology companies launched GMO Answers
, a consumer-focused website designed to be a central online resource for information on GMOs.
“GMOs are a growing topic of discussion today, with a wide range of questions and emotions on the topic,” Cathleen Enright, Ph.D., spokesperson for GMO Answers, said. “Food is personal, so we want to open the door for personal discussions. We recognize we haven’t done the best job communicating about GMOs — what they are, how they are developed, food safety information — the science, data and processes. We want people to join us and ask their tough questions. Be skeptical. Evaluate the information and decide for yourself. We look forward to an open conversation.”
GMO Answers is produced by the members of The Council for Biotechnology Information, which includes BASF, Bayer CropScience, Dow AgroSciences LLC, DuPont, Monsanto Company and Syngenta. American Farm Bureau Federation is a supporting partner.
