We do! About 50 independent experts have voluntarily contributed answers to the site. In addition, we ask company experts to respond to specific questions about company products or practices. Check out a few great independent expert responses:
- I was reading this article and it states that free inquiry is limited because of patent protection on GMO seeds. The article suggests this limit is unscientific, and it seems so to me (as a layman) that it is. What can you tell me about this position the GMO seed companies take? How can it be scientific to not allow free inquiry?
- Have you reviewed the study showing that GMOs caused cancer in lab rats?
- What are the effects of GMOs on the human body? Has GMO foods led to an increase in the development of allergies among certain groups of people?
