Not a one! However, it point out much of why I am trying to stay away from medication. I also find it interesting to note that Stevia is not a recommended sweetener for diabetics??!

I dont believe in any, but I still cant believe the amount of people who think that because you have diabetes you cant have any sugar at all. Its like they think it's an allergy and if you eat any you could die.

I think Stevia is too new for the FDA to approve, and also that it causes low sperm count in rats (or so Ive heard somewhere...)
