I need an alternative to sugar. What can I get that is not chemical and is safe?

asked by

I'm sorry if this question was asked before.  I just saw where they think Splenda causes leukemia and cancers in mice after long term use.  This is the sweetener that I have been using for a couple years in my hot tea.  I don't use Equal or Sweet N Low, because I didn't like what they were made from.  I thought Splenda was better, because it was made from sugar.  I don't want the extra calories because I drink too much tea to put sugar in every cup.  I don't like hot tea without sweetener.  So either I quit drinking hot tea, or somehow get used to it without sweetener. Help!

Stevia is great and natural because it is made from a plant

I go to the doctors in 2 weeks for annual checkup to get my asthma meds.  I am going to ask her what she thinks.

Have you tried honey? That's what my dad uses.

Honey, from what I read, is slightly more healthy than sugar, because it is still sugar, just a different form.  Would still have calories
