GinaStevia rebaudiana, known most for its naturally sweet leaves, is a zero-calorie, chemical-free sweetner that is sweeping the nation. Mother Earth News Radio recently chatted with Jim May, the first person to bring stevia to the United States 28 years ago. May, also the founder and CEO of Wisdom Natural Brands, discusses how he discovered stevia in South America and why stevia is the most healthful sugar alternative out there.
