Heart Risks From Black Licorice

According to the FDA's Linda Katz, potassium levels in licorice-eaters are usually restored with no permanent health problems once people stop eating the black stuff.

The old-fashioned treat can be particularly risky for adults over 40, the FDA says.

The food and drug administration warns that people over forty who eat two ounces of black licorice a day for at least two weeks could end up with an irregular heartbeat and other troubles.

"This is equal to eating three 1-inch pieces of black licorice for 14 days in a row", Kristi King, senior clinical dietitian at Texas Children's Hospital, told CBS News.

Reasonable people have agreed for decades that black licorice is the most disgusting, repulsive candy on the planet. Pregnant women should also avoid eating black licorice, the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health advises. That can lead to abnormal heart rhythms, high blood pressure, edema (swelling), lethargy, and congestive heart failure.

The transaction was disclosed in a legal filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available at this hyperlink . Their average price target spell out an upbeat performance - a 4% and would give FEYE a market capitalization of almost $3.18B.

If you're already not a fan of black licorice, now you've got a medical reason to say no to the old-timey candy.

Lastly, the FDA encouraged "moderation", recommending that "large amounts" of licorice shouldn't be consumed in one sitting.

It's reversible, though; potassium levels return to normal after you stop eating too much of it.

Licorice's compounds can also interfere with some medications, herbs and dietary supplements.
