One of the most perplexing dilemmas faced by countless people today is the 'sweet surrender' question -- that is, whether to give in to the evils of sugar, or accept a chemical substitute likes aspartame with all of the possible health problems that might involve.
This book, however, offers another option -- one thatís actually been known about for many centuries in parts of South America, and has been widely used by the Japanese for the past quarter century. Itís the sweet herb stevia --a noncaloric solution to the sweetener problem thatís not only totally safe, but has various health benefits. "The Stevia Story: a tale of incredible sweetness and intrigue," contains everything you need to know about this beneficial herb from Paraguay, from its history of use by the Guarani Indians to its 'rediscovery' by much of the civilized world and the campaign against it carried on by the FDA. Also included is a description of the various forms in which stevia may now be obtained, along with advice on how to grow the herb at home and 10 delicious stevia recipes. With a foreword by James S. Turner, author of "The Chemical Feast," and "Making Your Own Baby Food."
