Americans' knowledge of genetically modified foods remains low and opinions on safety still split

red a better reason to pursue genetic modifications than those that involved animals (e.g. produce beef with less fat).

When it comes to genetically modified products, the U.S. public clearly supports the role of regulatory bodies like the FDA to provide an independent safety approval for new biotechnology food products, said Michael Rodemeyer, executive director of the Pew Initiative on Food and Biotechnology. This finding suggests that the actions of government agencies are likely to play an important role in influencing public acceptance of the next generation of agricultural biotechnology products.

The nationwide survey, conducted August 5-10, 2003 by The Mellman Group and Public Opinion Strategies, consisted of telephone interviews of 1,000 American consumers. The margin of error for this survey is +/- 3.1%. The margin of error is higher for subgroups. Data from a similar survey, released by the Pew Initiative in March 2001, was used for tracking purposes.
