Spraying for Pesticides in California

This is the first I've heard about this - a few counties in northern California are being sprayed with a pesticide which apparently hasn't yet been proven safe for humans. A vote on this issue will be taken on Wednesday. Some of you live even closer than I do to the counties being affected.

Please take a moment to read about this important issue, and join me in signing the petition. It takes just 30 seconds, but can truly make a difference. We are trying to reach 20000 signatures - please sign here: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/stop-fumigation-of-citizens-without-their-consent-in-california

Once you have signed, you can help even more by asking your friends and family to sign as well.

I've heard about this and am concerned and confused and just don't know how to get reliable information. When they sprayed around Carmel a lot of people complained of respiratory problems, disrupted periods, and other scary things. And this stuff is about to start falling on my baby...

Not terribly helpful, but since we're talking about Scienceblogs...
