If the surveyor wishes to learn anything at all, he or she should
consult some individuals with experience in psychometrics to construct a
survey that will yield valid results. 

Firstly, the survey has very little to do with genetically modified
foods. Secondly, many of the questions are "leading" questions. Thirdly,
for several questions, the only option other than that desired by the
surveyor is "did not answer". Lastly, many of the questions are locally
specific, not exactly suitable when requesting responses from a
world-wide audience.
