May is considered one of the world's foremost experts on stevia, having brought it to the U.S. over 20 years ago. While most books published about stevia are cookbooks, May tells about its health benefits and recounts his story of discovering stevia in the Paraguayan jungle. He also discusses his struggle with the FDA to make stevia available in the United States.
"I look forward to discussing my book and the remarkable stevia plant first hand with show attendees who are interested in what many countries consider the world's most amazing natural sweetener," stated James May, founder and president of Wisdom Natural Brands. "It's been a long, complicated task bringing the healing herbs of Paraguay to the U.S., but if this book brings its readers improved health, it will have been well worth it."
