Label Foods with DNA? Really?

A recent survey by Oklahoma State University found that 80% of Americans favor a ban on labeling of foods with DNA. The online survey was "weighted to match the US population in terms of age, gender, education and region of residence."

DNA is the self-replicating material found in all plants and animals. It's the carrier of genetic information. (You've heard of genes, haven't you?) It's necessary for life itself--just like dihydrogen monoxide.*


Oh, the horror! Just look at all those chemicals! From wikipedia.org.
*Also known as "water."
