Nine Of Ten Mothers Would Like Clear Labeling Of Foods Containing GMOs

October 17, 2011: 08:44 PM EST
Though 45 percent of mothers surveyed had no idea what genetically modified organisms (GMOs) were, organic cereal manufacturer Nature’s Path said that once they were informed, most mothers – 90 percent of those surveyed – said they wanted foods containing GMOs to be clearly labeled as such. According to Nature’s Path, up to 80 percent of the packaged food eaten in North America may contain GMOs, though there is no law requiring that they be labeled. The survey of 566 moms also found that 80 percent are pretty certain of the ingredients of the processed foods they buy. More than half (52 percent) said genetically engineered ingredients would have a negative impact on their health and that of their families.
