Blog: GM still under the radar for many Americans

Catherine Sleep | 26 September 2003

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. Apparently only a quarter of Americans believe they have eaten GM foods, even though 70-80% of processed foods sold in supermarkets contain GM ingredients. Small wonder the industry doesn’t want more transparent labelling.

What do people really know about GM food?
