Stevia causes infertility in men. It's the worst sweetener. Splenda is okay but I don't use any sweetener derivative too much. I don't use anything with aspartame in it. Natural is always the best. Zero calorie sweeteners aren't really zero calories. They're just marketed that way in small packets, but if you're using several packets, then it's the same calories as regular sugar. Also, studies have shown that Diet sodas cause weight gain. I really believed it when I saw my neighbor and my old high school teacher become overweight from drinking too much Diet Coke.

Never tried Stevia, but I do use Splenda on anything that needs to be sweetened
