Lobbyist Claims Monsanto's Roundup Is Safe To Drink, Freaks Out When Offered A Glass

  1. RoundUp IS safe to drink.. It has a very low LD50--lower than most every day products. Unfortunately, the anti Monsanto people think it is some big evil corporation. In reality, more scientists agree that GMO is safe than scientists who agree that man made global warming is happening. Farmers CHOOSE GMO because they know it makes their job easier--they feed GMO to animals knowing it is safe.

    No, I do not work for Monsanto--I just want you to look at the actual science and not the fear mongering.

  2. I love your page--I read it every day..but I stongly disagree on the biotech bashing. Here is the link showing the overwhelming support by the scientific community that genetic modification is safe http://geneticliteracyproject.org/2015/01/pewaaas-study-scientific-consensus-on-gmo-safety-stronger-than-for-global-warming/

  3. The problem with growing GMO is that the seed does not replicate i.e. the farmer needs to buy new seed each year for the new crop. Not such a problem here but in the third world it would mean they would not be able to keep seed back for the next year. This I see is the greatest problem.

    1. Most farmers will buy new seeds from a breeder no matter what--it insures the quality of the product. It becomes a moot point since many of the patents have expired or are set to expire (btw, non GMO hybrid seeds are patented too) so if farmers want to risk planting lower quality second generation seeds, they are welcome to it

  4. Then make a video of you chugging it straight from the bottle.

    1. "The dose makes the poison"--there is very little, if any left on the final product. Which is why farmers ensure safety when applying it. Even so, look at the actual toxicity of RoundUp and you will see it is less dangerous than drinking a bottle of vinegar.
