When male rats were fed high doses of stevioside for 22 months, sperm production was reduced, the weight of seminal vesicles (which produce seminal fluid) declined, and there was an increase in cell proliferation in their testicles, which could cause infertility or other problems.(1) And when female hamsters were fed large amounts of a derivative of stevioside called steviol, they had fewer and smaller offspring.(2) Would small amounts of stevia also cause reproductive problems?
