WASHINGTON, June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- GMO Answers announced today the relaunch of the new GMOAnswers.com, a consumer education website, to continue answering questions about GMOs and biotechnology, while offering more multimedia content, enhanced search functionality and refreshed educational resources.
"Since 2013, GMO Answers' volunteer experts have answered more than 1,300 questions – a level of engagement far beyond what we ever expected. The website has been an educational resource on GMOs, biotechnology and the science behind how food is grown," said Michael Stebbins, Director of External Engagement at the Council for Biotechnology Information (CBI) and GMO Answers. "As the GMO conversation evolves, we know consumers continue to have questions and want to make informed choices about the food they eat and feed their families. Our core mission is to answer any and all questions about GMOs, which continues with the refreshed GMO Answers site while also providing an enhanced user experience."
The optimized digital experience on the refreshed website allows consumers to more easily find answers to the most-asked questions and updated resources. Users will find rich, dynamic content – including videos and interactive tools – that communicate the science behind GMOs. Going forward, GMO Answers will continue to work closely with its volunteer experts to find even more new ways to answer users' questions.
GMO Answers partners with a deep roster of independent experts, comprised of farmers, academics, nutritionists and biotechnology scientists who volunteer their time to share facts about GM crops, answer questions and dispel myths.
We invite consumers to visit GMOAnswers.com to experience the refreshed website and its improved offerings.
