Summary
Stevia is a game changer, no doubt about that. It has caused controversy in the US, originally being prohibited for food use by the FDA, but thanks in part to Coca-cola backing expensive studies on the leaf, has regained it's legal status as a safe and effective herbal supplement. Stevia is considered quite harmless, and in fact is the most common non-sugar sweetener in many countries such as Japan, which has done the opposite of the US and banned sketchy artificial sweeteners.
