Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that almost two-thirds of the Europeans surveyed believe genetically modified (GM) foods are dangerous to human health and the environment.
The poll by Ipsos found that 58 percent of Europeans believe GM foods pose a risk to human, animal and plant health.
In comparison, the U.S. is at just 29 percent and Britain is at 22 percent.
A majority of European people believe GM crops are safe to eat and produce food, while only 38 percent believe they pose a threat to human and animal health.
However, a majority of Europeans are worried about GMOs in general.
Nearly one in five Europeans said they have a “very high” or “very moderate” level of concern about GMOs, while a majority (56 percent) said they had “a moderate” or lower level of concerns.
The survey also found that more Europeans think that “genetically modified” crops are better for the environment, while about half of Europeans said that GMOs are not as good as traditional varieties of crops.
