How can we trust anything Neil Tyson says considering he supports posioing our food supply withe Roundup?

Legitimate studies by objective scientist who know about nutrition say GM food (Roundup) has horrific side effects. Tyson, came out and said GM food is safe. Despite that he is not a nutritionist.
I agree with Tyson about science but, in my opinion nothing he says can be trusted.
I wonder who is paying him off this time?

I think most of these 'show business scientists' speak on topics outside their fields of expertise as though they were an authority on the subject. When they do, I think.... Hmmmm.... maybe..... maybe not.
But when they talk about science in general, in most instances, I think they are pretty factual.
When they talk about their particular field of science, I listen with both ears.
people tend to think scientists are experts in everything science. They're not. No more than all construction workers being able to install your plumbing. Or a podiatrist performing brain surgery.
They can speak in general terms, but not offer a professional expert opinion.

In my opinion, insecurity plays a big role in why people seek more money than they need.
When I see a greedy person, I see a frightened person.
I don't see strength. I see weakness.

Tyson cares only about money and power.
My husband has a family member that is well educated, well off and ignores the problem with GM food. I like this family member but, you can not teach him anything. He is decent person and he does not want to fight. Despite having worked hard for his wealth and success there is much he does not know. He does things I think are risky. We can not enlighten everyone. He vacations in Mexico despite that our goverment says not to. All I can do is pray he and his family are safe. I will never have the money him and his wife do. Sadly I think the money gives them a sense of security that is an elusion.

I called him on his.. "We've been creating GMOs for 10,000 years" comment.
I said what they're creating today, nature doesn't allow.
They can only be created in a lab. Meaning, his statement was misleading at best. I also said.... Shame on you.
I didn't get a response.

When Tyson, spoke about genetically modified food he acted as if, he is a nutrition expert. I am not a scientist but, I read extensively about how GM food was created going back to the 1970’s. I read several studies on the side effects of Roundup documented in legitimate studies. Roundup, GM food is the equivalent of tobacco in the tewenty first century.
Tyson, like many other scientists was bought by Monsanto. I have zero respect for him.
Scientists believe Roundup promotes autism, other Neurological Disorders, cancer and digestive problems.
