43. People who actually drank Roundup - and from (Republican) Forbes

A 1991 paper reported on 93 cases of exposure to RoundUp in China. Eighty of the 93 patients intentionally ingested RoundUp at its 41% concentration (home gardeners use a much weaker 1% concentration). Only seven of them died. But 66% had damage to their gastrointestinal tract and 43% had sore throats.In the seven cases that were fatal, the average amount of weed killer ingested was 184 milliliters (about .7 cups) with the highest dose at about 500 mL, or about 2 cups. A 2004 toxicology review says that damage usually occurs when drinking more than 85 mL – just a third of a cup. This 62-year-old man was saved using hemodialysis after drinking a whole bottle of RoundUp, and this 37-year-old died after drinking 500 mL.So again, don’t drink a quart of RoundUp, and I’m glad Moore (who is not clearly identified in the clip) didn’t. But this has absolutely nothing to do with the argument Moore and the French journalist were having: whether or not RoundUp causes cancer. A World Health Organization panel says it “probably” does, in sufficient doses; human data link it to lymphoma and lung cancer. Monsanto has angrily taken issue with this statement.
