Ideology works both ways

Supporters of GM technology can be just as ideological when they insist that GMOs are necessary to "feed the world" and trash alternatives such as organic or agroecological farming methods.
When studies are published showing possible negative health or environmental impacts of GM technology, the researchers conducting the studies are usually viciously attacked by pro-GMO supporters.
Is it because this type of research undermines their scientific paradigm that GMOs are safe?
Aren't GM supporters being as ideological as anti-GM supporters? I would say yes.
