A well-regarded research team recently announced that glyphosate, the chemical used in the Monsanto-produced weed-killer Roundup, is likely carcinogenic to humans. But during an interview with French news channel Canal+, ecologist Dr. Patrick Moore claimed that Roundup isn't dangerous, and in fact is totally safe to drink. "You can drink a whole quart of it and it won't hurt you," he claims in the video. . . .
When the Canal+ reporter hears this, he challenges Moore to drink a glass of Roundup, which they'd happily produce for him. "You want to drink some?" he asks. "I'd be happy to, actually," responds Moore. But then ... "Not really. But I know it wouldn't hurt me!" When further pressed on the issue, Moore insists he will not drink a glass of the chemical concoction because "I'm not stupid" and also "I'm not an idiot" . . .
