I read that it is even safer than agave???Reply Robyn Openshaw, MSW says: October 24, 2010 at 7:57 pmYes, safer than agave in that there aren’t any known negative side effects, no impact on blood sugar. It is herbal and has been used safely in other countries for decades. More commonly used here in the U.S. in the past decade.Reply Anonymous says: October 23, 2010 at 10:07 amI have been using Stevia since 1996, when I realized the Equal I was using was causing my dermatitis. I have found no reactions from using it. Everything I have read indicates it is perfectly safe and has been used in other countries/cultures for a very long time. Some say it is an acquired taste, but I love it, and my hubby just started using it instead of sugar in his tea. He is very stubborn when it comes to trying something healthy.Reply Anonymous says: October 25, 2010 at 6:21 amOnly safer if raw and organic.Reply Anonymous says: October 26, 2010 at 7:14 amI’d be curious to see what Dr. Young says… I think he said any and all sweeteners are acidic to the body… Let me see if I can find the link… Oh, here it is. This is interesting and please read thoroughly to see what he says and see how you feel about it. It was eye opening and depressing for me at the same time because I have a sweet tooth but I figure if I’m going to induldge in my temptation atleast I can pick a more whole foods approach LOLhttp://articlesofhealth.blogspot.com/2010/08/fructose-causes-pancreatic-cancer.htmlReply Anonymous says: October 26, 2010 at 6:19 pmI guess I wonder how the sugar study was done. Were the subjects given isolated fructose, or were they given whole fruit? I believe that it isn’t healthy to break food down to its components. Perhaps by eating the fruit in its natural state it wouldn’t be detrimental to the body?Reply Anonymous says: November 2, 2010 at 12:21 amI believe that stevia actually nourishes the pancreas and is great for diabetics. I know diabetics, including my brother, who have seen significant benefits in their blood sugars from using it. One person who was extremely insulin dependent eventually didn’t need insulin injections…of course he was under proper supervision of a medical professional. Just saying that stevia has great benefits and is a nice way to add a little sweetness when needed 🙂Reply Anonymous says: November 3, 2010 at 2:13 pmStevia is great, but give Susta a try–best yet. Tastes delicious, full of fiber and probiotics, super healthy. Made by NXT Nutritionals.ReplyLeave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
