Warning about Stevia
I had a rapid onset reaction to stevia in the form of severe sinus congestion. I looked online to try and figure out why and if the stevia was the cause. Turns out the stevia plant is related to ragweed, which is one of the highest allergy causing plants in North America and Europe.
I have been allergic to ragweed all my life so this was no surprise, however, my surprise is in the promotion of this product without any warnings. Stevia is turning up in all sorts of "healthy" products from probiotics to protein shakes. So I constantly have to be on the lookout to make sure I don't accidentally get dosed.
