  • Danger: Black Licorice

    http://vitals.msnbc.msn.com/_news/20...-warns-the-fda

    Experts say that consuming 2 ounces of black licorice per day for two weeks can set the heart stuttering in susceptible individuals. The culprit is a compound called glycyrrhizin, which is what gives licorice its sweet flavor.

    Glycyrrhizin causes the kidneys to excrete potassium. And low levels of potassium can make the heart beat dangerously fast or out of sync, says Dr. Gregg Fonarow, a professor of cardiovascular medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles, School of Medicine.

    The compound also leads to salt and water retention which can be a problem for people with heart failure or high blood pressure, Fonarow said.
