    Don't use it.
    Don't like it
    Prefer a half sweetener in my coffee.
    That'll do.

    Salt - same same

    And I'm dying of cancer so I must be right

    Well since I have been using raw honey no headaches or other related ailments I had when using sugar.

    I must say I only use half a teaspoon of honey so not a lot in each serving.

    I wonder how that tastes.. what a great idea though. I"m surprised to see that Coke would actually use Stevia instead of sugar.

    It sure is.. good for you.

    It is hard to find Stevia here. Thanks for the reminder to look for it again.

    When I'm in the UK I have a healthy lifestyle, I'd say my only real weakness is coffee with brown sugar, which I drink a lot of, don't drink alcohol and prefer salads and fruits, I do occasionally have a sugar feast. though generally feel a lot more healthy and feel a lot better.
    Just remember, when you donít drink alcohol, when you wake up in the morning, thatís the best you are going to feel all day.
    Unless you load all your food and drink with sugar, a sensible food intake and regular exercise will suffice. Drinking plenty of water, especially in the tropics will generally flush most of the toxins away.
    If you have time to consider the damage that sugar, salt, fats, red meat etc are doing to your system, you would probably be better off dead.
    I hate food faddists and conspiracy theorists. Whe you meet them, it shows how boring their lives are. As Cy pointed out, it means you are turning into snaff.

    Honey and Sugar are more or less the same thing, they are both mixtures of glucose and fructose. It doesn't matter whether it comes from bees, sugarcane, or beetroot, it's still glucose and fructose and it's still going to rot your teeth and make you fat.

    Me too, in both cases they are usually people too stupid to understand how things really are and need to believe in fictions in order to make themselves feel smart and comfort themselves that they have secret knowledge that would make the world such a better place if only they were listened to.

    a glass of crushed ice with a decent squeeze of lime , generous dollop of hong tong and fill up with cocomax and give it a stir - rather nice

    I said that both honey and sugar are composed of fructose and glucose and that therefore it makes no sense to pretend that one is healthier than the other.

    Isn't the over processing and refining into a fine white crystal substance the problem?

    I guess the same could happen with stevia as well...

    No. It's the chemical structure of glucose and fructose (sucrose when they're joined together) and the way the body metabolises them that's the problem.

    ...but they won't all make your teeth turn purple. Squeezing the fructose out of bees might make turn other bits of you purple.
