Lobbyist Claims Pesticide is Safe to Drink, Refuses to Try Himself

Here’s a lesson for lobbyists: eating your words is a lot safer than drinking the poison you help sell.

A lobbyist and public relations consultant for the pesticide industry refused to drink a glass of Monsanto’s weed killer “Roundup” after labeling the substance safe to drink.

Discussing the United Nations’ recent classification of Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, as a likely carcinogen, Dr. Patrick Moore shot down an offer to drink a glass of the herbicide after initially telling a French filmmaker that humans could “drink a whole quart of it” without seeing any harmful effects.

“You want to drink some?” the filmmaker asked. “We have some here.”

After stating that he would “be happy to,” Moore quickly retracted while reiterating the product’s alleged safety.

“I know it wouldn’t hurt me,” Moore said, adding that people trying to commit suicide with it “fail fairly regularly.”

“So you are ready to drink one glass of glyphosate?” the filmmaker repeated.

“No, I’m not an idiot,” Moore responded before eventually storming off set.

Despite Moore’s claims, “symptoms of erosion of the gastrointestinal tract, dysphagia… and gastrointestinal hemorrhage” were found among 80 intentional Roundup ingestion cases, seven of which resulted in death, according to the National Pesticide Information Center.

With more than 1 billion pounds of pesticides being sprayed each year on domestic crops, Glyphosate continues to appear in countless urine, blood and breast milk samples.

A recently published study in Sri Lanka also found that farmers exposed to Glyphosate through well water were five times more likely to develop chronic kidney failure.
