Ah yes. Black Licorice, the candy that can inadvertently kill you if you eat a lot of it.

Yep. Great for people with low blood pressure, in moderation. If you've already got high blood pressure, stay away from that nasty stuff.

don't tell that to the Scandinavians

As a Scandinavian I've never heard of that. Appearently you have to eat more than 50g per day over a week, which is quite a lot.

That must be the weight of one of the toxic components of it. Cause I have eaten more than 100 of salt sild or tyrkisk pepper several days in a raw before

You eat 100g licorice per day for a week? If you do, you may be in danger.


>Å spise mer enn 50 gram svart lakris om dagen i minst to uker, kan føre til potensielt alvorlige helseproblemer - som økt blodtrykk og uregelmessig hjerterytme.

There are very few cases of this happening, and you're at risk probably only if you do this over time and/or are older than 50.
