According to a recent poll over at MSNBC, 95% of respondents want truth in labeling and believe that genetically engineered food should be labeled.
We’ve talked about truth in labeling here before. It basically boils down to this: consumers want to know what’s in our food, and corporations like Monsanto don’t want us to know. The FDA claims that Americans don’t care about GMO labeling, and this poll shows that they are dead wrong. As of this writing, over 95% of the people who responded want truth in labeling, and that means knowing what foods contain genetically engineered ingredients (see the screenshot above).
