By Anita Stewart

Dr. Patrick Moore was being questioned about golden rice for a documentary being filmed for Canal+ when the interviewer asked him about Monsanto’s weed killer product, Roundup. The following discussion took place and is on the video linked below. Monsanto claims that Dr. Patrick Moore does not speak for them or represent them in any capacity.

Last week it was established by a working group from the World Health Organization that Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup is indeed a carcinogen.

Dr. Patrick Moore: “You can drink a whole quart of (Roundup) and it won’t hurt you.”

Canal+: “You want to drink some? We have some here.”

Moore: “I’d be happy to, actually…. Uhh…Not.. Not really. But I know it wouldn’t hurt me.”

Canal+: “If you say so, I have some glyphosate, have some.”

Moore: “No. I’m not stupid.”

Canal+: “So, it’s dangerous, right?

Moore: “No, People try to commit suicide with it and fail; fail regularly.”

Canal+: “Tell the truth, it’s dangerous.”

Moore: “It’s not dangerous to humans.”

Canal+: “So, are you ready to drink one glass?”

Moore: “No, I’m not an idiot. Interview me about golden rice, that’s what I’m talking about.”

Canal+:  “We did.”

Dr. Moore then calls the host a “complete jerk” and walks out of the shot.
