GMO article

 Interesting article about real vs perceived public views on GMOs, organics, ect. In summary, it talks about poll bias: people are asked questions in polls a certain way which makes them respond in different ways. This article reveals that the 'food movement' (think anti-GMO, pro-organics, anti-hormone, ect) is not as widespread as first perceived, and is not growing. For instance, sales in farmer's markets (organic foods) reached a high point in 2007 and has remained steady since.
