Why we are so blind for what is good for us? People all over the world have problems with their weight and the levels of their blood sugar. More and more people have diabetis. Most of the artificial sweeteners are toxic and lead to cancer formations (and there are so many people lately that have cancer of any type), while there is a herb that can eliminate most of the problems of these people. Stevia is a herb that is more than 3 000 times sweeter than sugar but have no side effects like the sugar itself. The sweet components are not absorbed by the body and that means that this herb has no calories and there is nothing that can be transformed into body fat. Stevia is sweet but it needs no insulin for transportation in the body so it's ideal for diabetics. So tell me people why the governments all over the world try in every way to suppress using of this unique herb? The nature gave us this unique herb but the people refuse to except this gift and continue to kill themselves with all synthetics!

It is very bad to say that we are totally unaware about the food. We do not know what kind of food we should take for our healthy life. It is fact that maximum people suffering from diabetics. I thing maximum food are toxic which i eat to keep us healthy.

The real solution is to train our tongue to abstain from sickeningly sweet foods. That's the only way. Go back to what is used to be. Go back to the time when the only sweet foods we are tasting are those sweetened by nature like fruits and honey.

That "wonderful" herb tastes horrible. We grew a dozen plants last year, and powdered them, but find we can only use it in strongly flavored foods or with a strong dose of spices. The 3,000 times sweeter than sugar might apply to the refined stevia, but does not hold true for the plant.
