Environmentalists love to drone on and on about the dangers of insecticides
and herbicides entering the food supply and of fertilizer getting into our
rivers and lakes, but they applauded the restaurant chain Chipotle for
refusing to use food that came from plants that need less insecticides,
herbicides  and fertilizer. Even though they have never hurt anybody
Chipotle caved in to superstition and announced they won't serve food that
came from genetically modified plants.

Except that they still will, virtually none of the plant food humans have
consumed for the last few thousand years came from plants in their
genetically natural state.
