Fact and fear

EDITOR: I agree with Ruth Waltonspiel ("Close to Home: No on Proposition 37," Sunday). Food labeling should be based on fact, not fear.

Fact: There is an abundance of genetically modified foods on market shelves, and a strong majority of consumers are buying them.

Fear: If Proposition 37 passes, there will be an abundance of genetically modified foods, labeled as such, on market shelves and a growing population of consumers who choose not to buy them. If you want to choose what you consume, which is your right, vote yes on Proposition 37.
