This just in: Americans don't know what food is.
80% are in favor of mandatory labels on food containing DNA. Are you fucking kidding me right now? Almost all food contains DNA, whether it's fruits, vegetables, meat, bread, etc. It's especially embarrassing when you consider there's a distinct question on GMOs, and nobody made the connection. By the way, it's just lovely how many people want GMOs to be labeled, despite them probably eating a ton without realizing it, and GMOs themselves presenting benefits over organic food for the most part. Look at the graph! People are more concerned with GMOs than they are with trans fats and calories in restaurant/school menus! Don't get me wrong, it's nice that people want to know what they put in their mouths, but you just know most of these people would systematically avoid GMOs if given the chance. But hey, we live in a world where people are unreasonably afraid of anything that's more than six letters long, so why am I even surprised at this point?
