My wife and I have a dubious opinion of artificial sweeteners and aren’t inclined to use splenda or other such sweeteners, but I am interested in stevia, given that it’s natural. Of course, natural doesn’t necessarily mean healthy or safe. Sugar is natural but isn’t healthy for anyone in large quantities; the mushrooms in my lawn are natural, but they might be deadly. Anyway, I’ve heard that stevia is unsafe and I’ve heard that it’s totally safe, but I haven’t heard a lot about it from any impartial source (i.e., from someone who sells neither stevia nor a competing sweetener). So, given that many people here use stevia, I’m wondering what your opinion of it is, both whether it’s completely free of health concerns and whether you just like using it, given its cost, taste, ease of use, etc. Thanks.
