Monsanto and the truth

Dr. Patrick Moore, a Monsanto lobbyist recently humiliated himself on French television, after claiming that glyphosate, the controversial active ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide “Roundup” is safe for humans.

Roundup has recently become the center of worldwide controversy after a recent report from the World Health Organization concluded that the herbicide “probably causes cancer.”

While speaking in an interview with Canal+ in France, Moore made the ridiculous statement “You can drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you,” referring to the controversial weed killer.

The interviewer then called his bluff, saying “You want to drink some? We have some here.”

Caught off-guard, Moore first responds by saying “I’d be happy to,” but then quickly corrects himself and declines, saying  “actually, not really. But I know it wouldn’t hurt me.”

The interviewer then insists, “If you say so, I have some.”

Moore becomes visibly frustrated and replies quickly “I’m not stupid!”

“So, it’s dangerous?” the interviewer pushes back.

More responds with making the insane comment that “people try to commit suicide with it and fail regularly.”

Adding that “It’s not dangerous to humans!”

Moore then storms out of the room and ends the interview.
