Bill Nye The Science Guy Says He Has Revised His Outlook On Genetically-Modified Food

People who felt their love and respect for Bill Nye considerably decrease because of his anti-GMO stance can breathe a sigh of relief. The Science Guy recently made an appearance on Real Time With Bill Maher on HBO. After the show, Nye was joined backstage by Real Time's Miles Leicher to talk about the former's recent book titled Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation.

During the conversation, Nye divulged that after spending time with scientists and experts on genetically-modified food, he has decided to revise the chapter in the book about GMOs. Chapter 30 of the book is titled Genetically Modified Foods - What The GMF? Nye's arguments in said chapter have ruffled the feathers of a lot of experts and scientists who work in fields related to GMOs. He was even challenged by some of said scientists to public debates but Nye hasn't accepted any of them.

Well, unknown to most, Nye has taken it upon himself to spend time with scientists on Monsanto and learn more about what they do and do not do. Nye has obviously learned or unlearned some things during the visit meriting the change in his views.

Nye told Leicher of Real Time, "There's a chapter in there which I am going to revise. I've spent some time on it and I'm very, very excited. It's about genetically-modified food. I went to Monsanto and I spent a lot of time with the scientists there and I have revised my outlook and I'm very excited about telling the world."

Below is the video of Nye and Leicher's conversation backstage. The part where Nye talks about his change of views with regards to GMOs starts at the 3:37 mark.
