A scientist claiming that Monsanto pesticides are safe to use on plants and is no harm to the environment had to swallow his words recently because he wouldn’t drink a cup of water.
Dubious science man Dr. Patrick Moore (incorrectly identified in earlier reports as a Monsanto lobbyist) sent a slightly mixed message in a recent interview with French cable channel Canal+ when he was asked about Monsanto’s use of glyphosates in Argentina.
Moore: You can drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you
Interviewer: You want to drink some? We have some here.
Moore: I’d be happy to actually. Not really. But I know it wouldn’t hurt me.
Interviewer: If you say so, I have some glyphosate…
Moore: No, no. I’m not stupid.
How safe can it be if you as a scientist would decline to drink from it? If he’s “not stupid,” then maybe we should all revisit the use of Monsanto products.
