Highlights include:

  • 55% of adults surveyed believe organic produce is healthier than conventional, while while 41% say there is no difference. 40% claim most of their food is organic.
  • Nearly half of U.S. adults believe genetically modified food is neither better nor worse health-wise than non-GM foods.
  • More than 7 out of 10 say healthy eating is very important for a long and healthy life.
  • Over one-third of Americans don’t believe that scientists understand the health effects of GM foods very well.
