Dr. Patrick Moore, who has worked for pesticide manufacturers like Monsanto, refused to drink Monsantos product just seconds after claiming its safe to do so. He was offered it during a television interview with French cable channel Canal+.

Patrick Moore told the journalist that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide, was not causing cancer rates in Argentina to increase.

You can drink a whole quart of it and it wont hurt you, Moore insists.

You want to drink some? the interviewer asks. We have some here.

Id be happy to, actually, Moore replies, adding, Not really. But I know it wouldnt hurt me.

If you say so, I have some, the interviewer presses.

Im not stupid, Moore declares.

Its not dangerous to humans, Moore replied.

He said that people try to commit suicide by drinking Roundup but fail regularly. Moore then walked out of the interview.
