Following up on yesterday's post about Splenda, Etcetera friend AlexR suggests we consider Stevia. It claims to be genuinely natural, and being held back in the U.S. by the sweet-stuff-cartel. From the Stevia website:

If you've ever tasted stevia, you know it's extremely sweet. In fact, this remarkable noncaloric herb, native to Paraguay, has been used as a sweetener and flavor enhancer for centuries. But this innocuous-looking plant has also been a focal point of intrigue in the United States in recent years because of actions by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
