“We are right to take seriously the development of genetically modified foods, to debate the issues that their use raises, and to question critically the risks and benefits they present. At the same time, however, it is important to avoid hysteria, to define clearly the issues of concern, and to tackle these rationally and on an informed basis.”

“Currently there is a social and political controversy about the safety of foods produced from genetically modified (GM) crops, however, in the scientific community there is no dispute or controversy regarding the safety of GM crops.”

2  Chipotle says: “The cultivation of gmos can damage the environment.”

“This paper updates previous assessments of how crop biotechnology has changed the environmental impact of global agriculture. It focuses on the environmental impacts associated with changes in pesticide use and greenhouse gas emissions arising from the use of GM crops since their first widespread commercial use in the mid 1990s. ”

3  Chipotle says: “Chipotle should be a place where people can eat food.”

“Here at The Salt, though, we’ve been hearing from people who think Chipotle’s stance shows little integrity at all. Rather, it shows a double helping of marketing hype, they say. Greg Jaffe, the expert on GMOs at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, calls it “hypocritical” and based on “smoke and mirrors.” The Washington Post,meanwhile, accused the company of joining a “global propaganda campaign.'”
