FDA approves stevia - era of oppression ends!

NaturalNews Insider Alert ( newsletter

Dear NaturalNews readers,


Merry Christmas to all NaturalNews readers! Celebrate this holiday in a genuine way, and don't give in to the consumer massploitation that I'll be ranting about in an upcoming article - watch for that in the next email.


With winter storms sweeping across North America, bundle up, folks! And remember your winter nutrition: Vitamin D and zinc will help protect you from colds and flus (much better than a flu shot, by the way). You can also boost immune function with olive leaf extract, echinacea, vitamin C and lots of different herbs (like cat's claw). Drink some of that delicious herbal "treasure" tea from the Amazon Herb Co!


Remember, virtually all Americans (and Canadians and Brits, too...) are vitamin D deficient during the winter months. Boost your vitamin D from supplements or fish oils to protect your health.


The big news today? The FDA has approved stevia as a legal ingredient in foods and beverages. (GRAS approved.) But it's not for the reasons you think. Read my full explanation of the politics behind this decision here:
