Blog: GM still under the radar for many Americans

The UK’s GM Nation? debate seems to indicate that the better informed people are about GM technology, the more sceptical they become. An article on the Supermarket GURU site would seem to concur.

Small wonder the industry doesn’t want more transparent labelling.
