Teisl, Sonja Radas and Brian Roe, "Struggles in optimal labeling: how different consumers react to various labels for genetically modified foods", International Journal of Consumer Studies , 32 (2008), 447-456.

Variables: There are two groups of variables: benefits and risks: Benefits include: Decreased need for pesticides on crops Increased food production in poorer countries Lower food prices Decreased need for antibiotics in meat etc. Risks include: Unknown long-term health effects Increased risk of antibiotic resistant bacteria Increased use of pesticides Unknown or unanticipated toxins produced The sample: Sample composition: a nationally representative sample of 5462 US residents and an additional over-sample of Maine (710 individuals) residents.
