Does stevia cause infertility? Dr. Jockers is doing an in-depth report on stevia and whether it’s beneficial to your health. Spoiler alert: Dr. Jockers and his wife use stevia and have had four kids and so Dr. Jockers doesn’t consider stevia to be a problem.

However, he is going over how people have come to question stevia and the links between the sweet sugar substitute and infertility. It all starts with a fascinating story of how the Mato-Grasso Indians in Paraguay first used stevia.
