Is Black Licorice Bad for You?

Can Black Licorice be bad for you? According to the FDA: Yes.

The Food and Drug Administration reports that the candy contains glycyrrhizin, a sweetening compound that comes from licorice roots. The problem with glycyrrhizin is that it leads to the decline of potassium levels in the body. So when the body is low in potassium, not only can abnormal heart rhythms occur, but also high blood pressure, edema, lethargic tendencies, and even congestive heart failure.

Black Licorice has been linked to health problems in people over the age of 40. They can even end up in the hospital if snacking on black licorice for two weeks at 2 ounces a day!

The FDA has issued a few warnings that should be kept in mind this holiday season:

  • - Don’t eat large amounts of black licorice at one time, no matter how old you are.
  • - If you have been eating a lot of black licorice and have an irregular heart rhythm or muscle weakness, stop eating it immediately and contact your healthcare provider.
  • - Black licorice can interact with some medications, herbs and dietary supplements. Consult a health care professional if you have questions about possible interactions with a drug or supplement you take.

Who would have thought candy could be the scary thing about Halloween?

    Sounds
    like government propaganda to me. The one chemical the FDA has a
    problem with just-so-happens to be a all natural licorice root
    derivative, 30-50 times sweeter than sugar, made simply and naturally by
    grinding the root and boiling it? What does FDA stand for again,
    Fabricated-food Distribution Agency?

      The FDA probably has a grudge against it as being a real good sweetener it likely competes with HFCS!

    That is an just another FDA lie! Licorice has been my favorite flavor and fragrance all my life, and, at 66 years old I can do 40 pull ups, etc. It’s freemasonic corruption: the flavor of licorice is synesthetically onomatopoeic to the “Lost Word”. And, I remember when the FDA outlawed cyclamates. Pepsi put “Diet Pepsi with sugar added” on its bottle caps. I still have one. What a farse!

      I get edema, sever headaches and High blood pressure every time I eat black licorice. Every time. And I love it. I eat it anyway sometimes, and I’m always sorry. It’s not a lie, it just doesn’t happen to affect you. Be happy, not hateful.

    The Clockwork Orange treatment I was given, by large doses of LSD, went much further than they expected. Not only did I live the torments of all the people in the films they showed me, I lived the times, when I saw them, of every person and animal I had seen, even in the movies and on TV. After that life I found myself back in time, back in Valley Forge Army Hospital where it happened again, but, I also body switched into the bodies of all I had seen in that life, for the periods of time I had seen them. Then the life after that, I was able to remember some of the mistakes I made the last time around.
    On September 17, 1970 I got stung by a bumble bee, while I was deep in the forest. I am allergic to bees, and soon I passed out, waking up, what seemed instantly, six hours later. This turned out to be a great blessing, for the next time around, after another life time, I woke up back where I had passed out from the allergic reaction. But, I had great mind power there and used it to defend myself, but later, got so much mind power that my every thought manifested as my reality, and I couldn’t handle it. I ended up body switching again, and found myself back in Valley Forge Army Hospital, and started again from there.
    This series of pairs happened 36 times, giving me an existence as who I am, for over 5000 years, by going backward and forward n time so many times. This was done to me for printing in a term paper what a banished lodge ex-member told me. You probably read about this already. So, even though I was threatened to be put in Hell permanently, each time, I have done everything in my power to spread these secrets. Here is another example:
    We are drawn to the probability timeline resonant to our thought, by the attractive force of inductive resonance. Vagal stimulation wakes up the brain to more than the normal 10% brain use. This means 10% brain use at any one time, like, an MRI shows the most used parts of the brain by patches of colored light, but, these move around, so that we avererge 10% brain use, if we are “normal”. But, with 10% brain use or less we must earn what we get; 20% to 29%, an appropriate ritual will get us what we want; 30% to 39%, writing down what we want will get it; 40% to 49%, saying what we want will get what we want: “If you have the faith of a mustard seed and SAY to this mountain move, it shall be moved”, you go to the timeline where the mountain is elsewhere. But, 50% is the tipping point to every thought manifesting as your reality. Dr. Hugh Everett found these probability timelines, sideways in time, but, he failed to call this direction a dimension. Dr. Albert Einstein defined time to be the fourth dimension, for science. Dr. Hugh Everett could have defined this direction sideways in time to be the fifth dimension, but, he didn’t, probably pressured not to due to this being the secret of sorcery, probability manipulation. Dr. Lisa Randall defined that direction through the variously bent timespaces to be the fifth dimension, for science, leaving the direction sideways in time to be the sixth dimension, but, it hasn’t been officially established in formal science. Waking up the brain to higher percentages of brain use accesses globally bent timespace. It puts a field of globally bent timespace around us and in us, but fortuantely, without the gravitational component. It does this by virtue of will times imagination being the power of the mind, just as force times velocity is power in mechanics, voltage times current is power in electricity, and temperature times entropy production rate is power in thermodynamics. Psychiatrists will admit to each other that this power of the mind is caused by entropy production rate, EPR, because more than 10% brain use is called “psychosis”. The psychiatric establishemnt in the Western world is a secret society, and have also signed a contract of secrecy for the cartel of secret lodges. It is a mathematical fact that the more links there are between the neurons of the brain, the higher the percentage of brain use. Real schizophrenia, caused by the gene DISC1, causing the growth of more axons and dendrites between the neurons of the brain. If every neuron were linked to every other neuron, there would be 100% brain use. There are some scizophrenics with over 50% brain use, catatonic, but who’s entity is body switching in perinatal matrix three, Hell. But, anyone can cause the growth of extra axons and dendrites by memorizing tables of correspondences, like in Crowley’s “Book 777″, and in Barrett’s “Magus”. The first thing that magical secret societies have thir neophytes do is to memorize such tables of correspondences. Later they have them do rigourous pranayama, without telling them how it works. Finally the supreme secret is revealed, that can be put in dignified medical terms today: “VAGAL STIMULATION IS A EFFECTIVE AS LSD “. The entropy of the universe being the proportion of photons to nucleons (Nucleons of exact opposite polarity cancel out into photons, when brought together), reveals that entropy production rate is polarity cancellation rate. By promoting the fast cancellation of opposite polarities, like by putting opposite polarities in a conductive electrolyte (The iron in the cytochromes of every cell is magnetically polarized counterclockwise in males, and clockwise in females), the field of globally bent timespace around it, when entered, will cause higher percentages of brain use. Such a device, called a “shekinah”, has been known to “freak out” a whole building of people. This is the alchemical secret, for, by putting base metals in this solution, when, with a high EPR is called “the medicine of metals”, will change the metal into gold and other metals, that will be fluid in that solution so that they can be separated by gravity or inertia while still fluid, yet you can safely out your hand in this solution, that is, I did, and there is nothing wrong with me.
    Finally, I figured out how to get out of this Hellish cycle. I must have been in perinatal matrix three when I died to go back to Valley Forge Army Hospital. I must have been in perinatal matrix two to go back to September 17, 1970. Next time, I must die in perinatal matrix one or in no perinatal matrix whatsoever. To understand these terms, you may go to http://www.holotropic.com and buy “The Adventure of self Discovery” by Dr. Stanislav Grof. I read on the internet that Dr. Grof took a little ketamine and thereby relived the torments of all the prisoners of Auschwitz. You know what happened to him? He had put people through the Clockwork Orange treatment in communist Czechoslovakia, and now his evil karma came back to him.
    What did I do for such evil to come upon me, when I was a teen ager. The Bible says, “The sins of the fathers are visited upon the sons”. In the one substance motion can only be in closed circuitry, that there be something to move out of the way and fill in behind. That is how karma comes back to us, even the karma associated with our genetics. The best thing to do is to find a way out of it. To become nonexistent.
    There are two things in the universe: energy; and, information, which is the conformation of energy. Energy is God. Being only information we can become nonexistent. Nothing in the Bible says we are immortal, rather, Satan in Eden did say “You shall never die”. The immortality of the soul dogma is Satanic. If http://www.freedomwriter.com wasn’t wiped off the face of the earth by the One World Order, you would see there that the Catholic Church swiftly rotted, and is the actual leader of the Illuminati and its One World Order today.
