(NaturalNews) The debate over whether or not to label genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) has long been settled -- the people undeniably and overwhelmingly want to know what is in their food. A new poll released by the Huffington Post and reveals that about 83 percent of all Americans, from all demographic backgrounds, support mandatory GMO labeling, regardless of their own personal views on GMO safety.

The survey is one of the latest in recent years to reveal near-unanimous support for GMO labeling, and it further reinforces the need for full transparency when it comes to food labeling. As it turns out, this fundamental right to know trumps personal opinions about GMO safety in every single demographic category -- even people who do not necessarily see anything wrong with GMOs, or who are unsure how they feel about them, believe everyone has a right to know when they are used in food.

When asked the question, "Do you think foods that contain genetically modified ingredients should be labeled indicating that, or do you think that's not necessary?" 83 percent of respondents to a poll, as of this writing, said "Yes." An even higher amount of HuffPost readers, 95 percent, indicated their support for mandatory GMO labeling, according to the survey.

Even though roughly 21 percent of respondents indicated their belief that GMOs are safe to eat, only nine percent said they do not think it is necessary to label them. 44 percent of respondents to the same poll said they were unsure about the safety of eating GMOs, while 35 percent said they believed GMOs were flat-out dangerous and unfit for human consumption.

On the other hand, the fact that only nine percent of respondents to the poll said they thought it was unnecessary to label GMOs indicates widespread support for mandatory GMO labeling regardless of personal views about them. Meanwhile, a mere eight percent of respondents said they thought GMOs were good for the environment, despite prolific industry propaganda that has long claimed GMOs would benefit farmers.

The joint poll was conducted between February 28, 2013 and March 1, 2013, and included 1,000 adults carefully selected using's opt-in online panel, which is designed to select participants based on a wide range of demographic factors. However, the survey questions are still posted online at HuffPost, as of this writing, which means Natural News readers can also vote and express their views on GMO labeling and safety.
