I know, that's why I said there is "some truth"
It's got some benefits and some negatives.

Is Stevia approved by the federal authorities in South Africa, Snip? It does not have FDA approval in the U.S. Poor FDA! One bunch of folks without any background in science is sure that the FDA is lax in approving Teflon, while another group accuses the FDA of being part of a "conspiracy" to ban the drug by sugar growers and synthetic sweetener manufacturers. And we Americans love a conspiracy!
Many years ago, I took a BSc in biology and did some rudimentary biochemistry. It taught me enough, though, to realize that I am totally incompetent to judge the claims and counterclaims of real organic chemists!

Not yet, legislation is still pending but it has been used by herbalists for years in SA. South African Government is all about bribes and not facts. They haven't even approved the use of Nano Silver even though test from the CSIR confirm that it lowers CD 4 counts to below 200 and cures Malaria. I could go on but I don't have hours to talk right now

I like Diet Coke. I drink about 450 lbs worth of this beverage annually.
