Where is the website that has non-industry people answering the questions? Like maybe one with independent scientists and/or health professionals who DON'T have a connection to the biotechnology industry. Because that's where I'd like to get my answers from. Sorry if I seem a little skeptical, but really, any industry is going to spin...this looks like nothing more than a big old PR campaign for GMOs.

You found it! We’ve been working with about 50 independent experts who have volunteered to answer questions. None of the independent experts contributing to this site are compensated for their answers. It’s purely voluntarily.  Check out a few great independent expert responses:

GMO is a general term that is used to describe a genetic variation that has occurred, which not only happens in nature, but humans have been doing this through selective breeding for over thousands of years. When people refer to Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), they are referring to precision plant breeding using genetic engineering. It allows plant breeders to take a desirable trait (like resistance to drought, insects, weeds, and disease) from one...

Technically, you can mix traits among species, which is how transgenic work is done. The first transgenic mouse was introduced with the human growth hormone gene, and by overexpressing the growth hormone, the mouse grew bigger, but not the same as human size. This is more like the function of the gene. Whether it can mix the physical features between species will be different, but something like a chimera study that mixes animals of two strains might carry physical features of both. However,...

There are currently no breeding techniques used to create genetic variations of hair textures. If a person wishes to change their hair texture in any way, they are currently limited to the available hair care products sold for those purposes.   However, new gene editing techniques are continued to be developed for different beneficial purposes and what you are referring to is the possibility of editing genes in humans. Some of the areas to apply gene editing, particularly in humans, are... Read More
