Monsanto lobbyist refuses to drink water he claims is safe

(0:43) He's not stupid. Monsanto lobbyist Patrick Moore, who claimed the company's Roundup weed killer was safe for humans to drink, refuses to consume some himself when offered it during an interview with French TV channel Canal+. The World Health Organization's cancer-research arm, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, classified the widely used herbicide (glyphosate) as "probably carcinogenic to humans".

"GM foods currently available on the international market have passed safety assessments and are not likely to present risks for human health. In addition, no effects on human health have been shown as a result of the consumption of such foods by the general population in the countries where they have been approved." LINK

This guy seems like a moron, undeniably. However, I don't think his position is totally inconsistent. Drinking cow urine is probably 'safe' for humans too, but no one in their right mind would want to.
