GMO labeling makes public more likely to trust food companies

As of 2016, U.S. law requires genetically modified (GMO) foods to be labeled. And though major corporations fought the change, it seems to have made them more trustworthy, The Atlantic reports. Polling of people in Vermont—the first state to adopt such labels—reveals that their concern decreased by 19% with the use of such labels, according to a new study in Science Advances. Though some still have concerns about GMO foods, transparency appears to set them more at ease.
