I'm Cathy Enright from GMO Answers, which helps people get answers to their questions about GMOs from the people & companies who create, grow, and study them. AMA!
Thank you all so much for coming to this AMA today! If you have additional questions, please feel free to ask me, or any of the experts who answer questions, at http://gmoanswers.com/ask.
I'm Cathy Enright, Executive Director of the Council for Biotechnology Information which founded GMO Answers. I think it's fair to say that the biotech seed industry needs to do a better job talking about the technology—what GMOs are, why farmers choose them, what benefits they provide, and to address any and all questions about their safety. Every day we're answering people's questions about GMOs, and I'm looking forward to answering as many of yours as I can today. I have a PhD in Biochemistry, I'm a mother of four, and am a passionate advocate for all of U.S.agriculture. AMA!
