Monsanto Lobbyist Refuses To Gulp Carcinogenic Glyphosate After Calling It Safe To Drink [Watch]

"You can consume a whole quart of it and it will not injure you," he firmly insisted then went crazy and stormed out of the interview when the Canal+ reporter offered him a glass. "I'm not stupid. I'm not a moron," Moore said before quickly ending the interview and calling the host a "total jerk". Dr. Patrick Moore, the "ecological professional" and the front-man for Ecosense Environmental, took a seat with French tv station Canal+ to discuss golden rice. He told the reporter interviewing him that Monsanto's herbicide, Roundup, was not responsible for the skyrocketing cancer rates in Argentina. Moore declared that it was safe to drink a quart of Roundup pesticide, but declined to try even a sip while on the set.

In March, the World Health Organization's International Firm for Research on Cancer released a report which discovered that glyphosate was "most likely carcinogenic to human beings", responsible for increased risks for non-Hodgkin lymphoma. After the research's publication, Monsanto has been scrambling to obtain the WHO to retract its report.
