Children of the Corn: Slate offers up a detailed, scathing analysis of why you shouldn’t trust a recent Elle article about a supposed alleged allergic reaction to genetically modified corn, and why you should be wary of the anti-GMO conspiracy theorists. Gluten-Free in Black and White: The FDA finally sets guidelines for what can and can’t be called “gluten-free,” but you should probably still expect unhappy reactions from all sides. Wednesday Is the Best Day: A study (commissioned by a bottling company, so take that with a grain of salt) finds that most wine drinkers start the weekend drinking on hump day; that men start drinking earlier on Wednesday than women; and most of them drink at glass at home. So we now know a lot about one hypothetical glass of wine. Mystery Meat: Scientists debut a burger made from genetically lab-grown meat. It cost $330,000 for five ounces, so think about that the next time you feel like whining about the prices at Shake Shack. Making Lemonade: Remember Amy’s Baking Company? The Arizona pizza joint with the crazy-eyed meowing owner who drove Gordon Ramsay away? They may have caught on that no publicity is bad publicity, and are selling self-mocking t-shirts for a charity for the families of fallen firefighters. And, yes, they’re looking into a reality show.
