Editor’s Note: How much is a human soul going for these days I wonder?

You all know that we here at Nutritional Anarchy are adamantly opposed to toxic farming methods like the use of Round-Up killer.

But little did we know that it is apparently so safe you could drink an entire quart of it and live to tell the tale. Apparently according to a former Greenpeace-activist-turned-Monsanto-lobbyist (there’s gotta be a heck of a story in how that particular occupational transition occurred), it wouldn’t hurt you at all. (You can read Patrick Moore’s bio HERE, and wonder with us exactly how much it costs Monsanto to buy themselves their very own environmentalist.)

Anyway, back to the interview. Here’s a fun little excerpt:

Moore: You can drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you.

Reporter: You want to drink some? We have some here.

Moore: I’d be happy to actually. Not…not really, but…I know it wouldn’t hurt me

Reporter: If you say so, I have some glyphosate…

Moore: I’m not stupid.

Well, gosh. Is it safe or isn’t it, Dr. Moore? Apparently he’s all talk, since the glyphosate cocktail went unconsumed.

Enjoy the video of what is most likely the end of Moore’s career as a sell-out lobbyist:
