It was announced on Monday that Tom Cruise would be partnering up with the Church of Scientology to create a massive film and TV studio right in the middle of Hollywood.

All hail Chipotle!

The king of fast food just went ahead and brought itself to a whole 'nother level.

That's because everyone's favorite Mexican Grill just announced on Monday that it would officially be taking any genetically modified organisms off of its menu!

In our health-conscious world, it's a little surprising that Chipotle's announcement marks the first time a major franchise has opted out of using G.M.O.s, but what's more interesting is that in 2013 the restaurant was actually the first of its kind to even disclose which ingredients featured the modifications.

So aside from knowing that you'll no longer be eating any G.M.O.s at Chipotle, what's actually changing about the menu??
