Those who do some web research about genetically modified foods may happen across an industry promotional website called GMO Answers. Here, respected—and presumably unbiased—experts provide answers to frequently asked questions about genetically modified foods. The answers almost invariably downplay public concerns about genetic engineering’s potential threats to human and ecological health.
Five UC Davis researchers have contributed to the website, which is funded by Monsanto, Syngenta and other biotechnology companies.
Gary Ruskin wants to know why the professors are doing what he calls “public relations work for a very controversial industry.”
