    :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    The stevia thing: over here, the FDA has banned it being sold as a sugar substitute. You're only allowed to sell it as a "health supplement". It's used widely in Europe/Asia, is perfectly safe, etc etc. There appears to be no reason other than lobbying from the artificial sweetener companies here in the US.

    not just the artificial sweetener lobbyist but also the sugar lobby......the sugar cane industry is surprisingly powerful....

    Thank god, no, and never will be :mamoru: I'm just bitter, I've been trying to get my tubes tied since I was 21 and no doctor will do it. "Oh honey, you'll want kids someday, you just don't know it yet!" :greddy:

    they might be right :mamoru:

    i wouldn't make a decision like that so young. besides i thought its pretty hard to get pregnant a lot younger than people think (eg. 30 yr old)

    i'm 26, going to be 27 :dunno: I don't want kids and I never have. I like them just fine, love my nieces and my younger sibs, but I don't want them. I just find it ironic that if I were sobbing about not being able to get pregnant the industry would be ALL OVER that shit.

    Anyways... :p

    If you want to try stevia, just a word: look for white stevia, the other stuff can taste rather like licorice. Liquid stevia is even better.

    Meh :dunno: I'm the only one of my family who isn't a rabid right-wing religious nut, so it's probably good those genes don't get passed along.
