Extreme Opponents of Genetically Modified Foods Know the Least but Think They Know the Most

— Written By

Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder, Washington University in St. Louis, the University of Toronto, and the University of Pennsylvania found that as the extremity of opposition to genetically modified foods increased, the actual understanding about science and genetics decreased. In other words, extreme opponents of genetically modified foods think they know the most, but know the least. The studies included a sample from the US, Germany, and France.

Their results were published in the journal Nature Human Behavior.
