Chipotle’s has decided to shun genetically-modified ingredients — such as, for example, the corn and soy that most of us eat on a regular basis. It’s a purely populist move, feeding on public misconceptions about the safety of GM foods. And if there’s a market niche there, fine. But what would we think of a business that banked on the public’s misunderstanding of the scientific consensus on, say, climate change? Or evolution? All three issues are subject to about the same level of scientific certainty. >>>

Interestingly, the announcement drew a parallel — a faulty one — between GM foods an various “junk” ingredients such as fillers.
