At least 83 percent of Americans think GMOs should be labeled

(NaturalNews) The debate over whether or not to label genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) has long been settled -- the people undeniably and overwhelmingly want to know what is in their food.
 A new poll released by the Huffington Post and reveals that about 83 percent of all Americans, from all demographic backgrounds, support mandatory GMO labeling, regardless of their own personal views on GMO safety.

 The survey is one of the latest in recent years to reveal near-unanimous support for GMO labeling, and it further reinforces the need for full transparency when it comes to food labeling. As it turns out, this fundamental right to know trumps personal opinions about GMO safety in every single demographic category -- even people who do not necessarily see anything wrong with GMOs, or who are unsure how they feel about them, believe everyone has a right to know when they are used in food.

When asked the question, "Do you think foods that contain genetically modified ingredients should be labeled indicating that, or do you think that's not necessary?" 83 percent of respondents to a poll, as of this writing, said "Yes." An even higher amount of HuffPost readers, 95 percent, indicated their support for mandatory GMO labeling, according to the survey.

Billy - I like it when we agree.

If you ever wondered if elections in the U.S. were rigged, just look at the California vote on GMO labeling
that state voted against it. No way man, especially California they vote for anything like that. Our elections are rigged, at least the important ones. Obama got 100% OF VOTES IN KEY PRECINCTS.
