96% of Americans Support Labeling of GMO Foods

Posted by
     

GMOs The results of an MSNBC poll that posed the question, “Do you believe genetically modified foods should be labeled?” indicate that nearly all Americans believe that foods containing () should indeed be labeled.

Of the nearly 40,000 people who participated in the poll, 96% answered “Yes. It’s an ethical issue — consumers should be informed so they can make a choice.”

It’s not news that most Americans support labeling of GMO foods. Other recent, widely publicized surveys have shown that over 90% of Americans believe that GMO foods should be clearly labeled as such. Yet the has seemingly sided with Big Agra on this one, ignoring public opinion. But this lack of transparency can only continue for so long.

As Ethan A. Huff wrote today in an article on NaturalNews.com:

“Americans, when provided with the information they need and the option to make a rational decision in the matter, continue to oppose GM foods. And when enough of them get fed up with the current racket that prevents transparency and freedom of food choice, the labeling situation may eventually change.”

Are you fed up? Join the fight! Here are some resources to get you started:

    Internet polls are not scientific. Because the sampling is not representative, you can only conclude that 96% of those who clicked on the poll want such labeling.

      You are certainly correct. :) However, the results of numerous other surveys on GMOs – conducted both online and off – have been similar. Most Americans believe that we, at the very least, have the right to choose whether or not to consume GMOs, without having to avoid all “potentially GM” foods.

        In Europe GMO foods must be labeled as such. We tend to prefer naturally produced foods and because of this very few if any GMO products are successful here. The US government has been putting intense pressure on the EU to prohibit such labeling, something which most Europeans are well aware of and very much resent.
