I've just been reading (on wikipedia, my favorite website, and this other random website) the fascinating and political history of stevia, the sweet leaf plant. Used for centuries, then banned by unknown people for unknown reasons with easily divined motivations... and then approved just as the Cargill and Coca-Cola companies are ready to introduce a new stevia based sweetener...A sugar substitute thriller. Do you suppose there were any gadget-y spies?
