Irregular heart beat from eating too much black licorace

I'm on the FDA's email list. Today there was an article about irregular heart beat caused by eating too much black licorace. I had never heard about this so thought I'd pass it on. The video didn't specify what type of irregular heartbeat. But given just cold water can trigger aFib for some it seems reasonable to assume that some of us aFibbers might find the black licorace to be a problem too. Happy Halloween!

    I've also heard at some point in time that black licorace should be avoided.....can't remember when or where, though...so can't be substantiated.   Anyway, I will avoid it "just in case".  That will not be too much of a food restriction for me!  Jean

    So what is the nutritional value in Liciorace?Just wondering if it’s worth while inputting in to the body. I’ll do much more reading of the link today. Thanks BethClark

    Black licorice raises your blood pressure, which can trigger a fib.

    It's also used to treat afib. I see the key words are "too much", huh?
