Flat Belly Tea Review Whether its aspartame, sucralose or Truvia, the medical consensus is that they are very safe products. This is supported by regulatory agencies around the world, who have evaluated these compounds not once, but multiple times, the best research from academic obesity centers, and the consensus of expert medical committees of various scientific organizations.
Billions of cans of diet drinks have been consumed since 1982 when aspartame was approved by the FDA without a proven instance of cancer, nervous system diseases, or visual problems.
