GMO safety and ignorance

GMO opposition study.
"about 75 percent of the population chose health and safety concerns" though this summary doesn't spell out "GMO being safe to eat" vs. "concerns about more pesticide use".
Opposition anti-correlates with knowledge of genetics: the more you know, the less concerned about GMO safety you are. And in the US (but not Europe), the ignorant considered themselves knowledgeable.
Opposition isn't a left-right thing.
