Licorice can kill you

Eating 1½ bags a day of licorice killed a 54-year-old man, NBC News reported. The problem is that glycyrrhizic acid in licorice root extract raises blood pressure and could lead to “dangerously low” potassium and electrolyte imbalances. Eating “as little as 2 ounces of black licorice a day for two weeks could cause a heart rhythm problem,” the FDA says. Putin reportedly sent a candy dish with a Get Well card to Alexei Novalny.

    Since there is no actual licorice in Twizzlers it will not kill Putin or help Putin remove political rivals.

    Licorice artificial flavor is safe except for the sugar. Actual licorice comes from the Glycyrrhiza glabra.
