Agave and Marketing

This article by Dr Mercola, Agave: A Triumph of Marketing over Truth, is certainly worth a read.

What have your experiences with agave been?

Personally, I've made an active effort to minimize the amount of agave I consume. About 2 years ago I started to notice that I got really "flemmy" in my throat after I had a smoothie or tea with agave. 

Outside of that, I also noticed that my teeth suffered from the amount of agave I was having (2 to 4 table spoons a day). The sensitively I once had to hot and cold returned and I had to bring back my strict ToothSoap + food grade hydrogen peroxide routine. Which worked very well by the way.

I know I'm going to be scolded by some out there, but right now I use raw organic honey as a sweetener. I use it sparingly, but I still use it. I've tried stevia, but the chemical taste doesn't work for me.

It would be interesting to hear about your agave and sweetener experiences. Are you down with agave? Do you like stevia? Do you use any sweeteners?
