Willingness to Buy Genetically Modified Foods: An Analysis of Plant and Animal Origins in the US

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) invoke emotions ranging from outright refusal to lukewarm acceptance within and across nations. In order to gauge the perception of and attitude toward GMOs in the US, a random sample of 1,201 adults was interviewed using Computer-Assisted Telephone Interview (CATI) system between May 4, 2004 and June 14, 2004. The computational framework of this interview was to capture the relationship between socio-cultural-demographic and knowledge factors determining acceptance of GMOs based on both plant and animal origin. There is a widespread acceptance of plant-based biotechnology in comparison to genetic modification of animal-based food products.
