Stevia Could Help Protect Against DNA Damage, According to New Study
Posted Oct 02 2008 3:13pm
Note from Connie: You may already have heard about stevia, the herb that's some 150 to 300 times sweeter than sugar, has zero calories and doesn't raise blood sugar levels.
Now, a newstudysuggests that the shrub, which is grown in parts of south America and Asia ans used as a sweetener over there, may help protect against DNA damage and cancer. Bear in mind that stevia is not sold as a sweetener here in the U.S. but is available as a supplement, as I point out in my book SUGAR SHOCK! My blogging assistant Karen James gives you more info.
