YES on Proposition 37

There are all sorts of posts about Prop 37 that we'll be voting on in California in a little over a month.  I want genetically modified foods to be labeled as such so that we can choose to avoid them, so I am glad I get a chance to vote YES on Prop 37.  

GMOs have pesticides built in to the seed and are linked to birth defects, cancer, and hormone disruption, among other things.  Right now, the main edible GMO crops are corn, soy and sugar beets.  I generally avoid these ingredients and if I do eat them, I choose organic since organic crops are not genetically modified.  These foods also appear in many other forms

Prop 37 won't outlaw GMOs, it will just allow us to make more informed choices about the foods we buy.
