[Editor’s note: Not sure if glyphosate, the toxic active ingredient in the Monsanto’s flagship herbicide Roundup, is safe?

Here’s a lesson for lobbyists: eating your words is a lot safer than drinking the poison you sell.

Today’s lesson is brought to you by Dr. Patrick Moore, who has worked for pesticide manufacturers like Monsanto, refusing to drink Monsanto’s product just seconds after claiming it’s safe to do so:
