BTW...Naughty you never responded to my question about stevia! However I just came across some additional information in a report about a report in the NYT:

"The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a food advocacy group that has often been critical of sugar substitutes, initially raised concerns about stevia sweeteners when they came onto the market in 2008, saying the Food and Drug Administration should have required more testing. However, the group ranked stevia as one of the safest of the sugar substitutes in a 2014 report, in part because it has a long history of use in Japan."

And BTW you've been quiet... I hope this isn't due to the weather and anything horrible happening to you and yours. Be well, please, and take care.
