A network of unpaid experts are giving up their time to debunk the many myths about GM crops.

GMO Answers – backed by The Council for Biotechnology – is an online platform where people can find out more about an issue which is often misunderstood.

“GMO Answers is an initiative committed to responding to your questions about how food is grown. Its goal is to make information about GMOs in food and agriculture easier to access and understand,” the organisation’s website states.

A recent paper ‘GM Crops: Global Socio-Economic and Environmental Impacts 1996-2015’ from PG Economics says biotech crops are helping to slash harmful greenhouse gas emissions while at the same time injecting tens of billions of dollars into the global agricultural industry.
