    Dr. Oz loves stevia!

    This was a fantastic article over at seeking alpha. Its a huge deal that such a well known tv personality would publicly state their support of a product, with his reputation being on the line and all. This to me says that there are no side effects from stevia.

    ------------Here's a portion of the article that I find very interesting----------

    However, it wasn't only that stevia was touted as the best sugar substitute that opened people's eyes, but it was explained to millions of viewers that, according to Dr. Oz, new research has shown that artificial sweeteners, such as Monsanto's (MON) aspartame, Tate & Lyle's (TATYY.PK) sucralose, and NutraSweet's neotame could actually cause weight gain. These sweeteners may also be the cause of metabolic syndrome, an epidemic sweeping the country. Metabolic syndrome is a combination of high blood pressure, excess belly fat, and insulin resistance-and per Dr. Oz, it has been shown that just one soda with artificial sweeteners is enough to lead to this syndrome.
