Plant Biotechnology Companies Begin New Conversation about GMOs and How our Food is Grown
Date:7/29/2013

WASHINGTON, July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The agricultural biotechnology companies that develop genetically modified seeds — or GMOs — are coming together to launch a broad, new initiative to provide accurate information and answer the toughest questions about GMOs and how our food is grown. GMO Answers (www.GMOAnswers.com) is a new conversation, public Q&A, and central online resource for information on GMOs, their background, use in agriculture, and research and data in one easy-to-access public resource for the first time.

"GMOs are a growing topic of discussion today, with a wide range of questions and emotions," 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."

As the public discussion on GMOs continues, the scientists who develop biotech seeds along with farmers who grow them want to make information about GMOs easier to find and understand.

"This type of open conversation, connecting consumers to experts in academia, government and the industry, is absolutely necessary to advance food and agriculture research to ensure that everyone has access to the highest quality most sustainably produced food. Having grown up on a small farm and spent much of my life in academia I can relate to the issues on several levels.  I've offered to address questions submitted to GMO Answers openly, based on my personal insights, experience and research," Professor Martina Newell-McGloughlin'/>"/>
