Black Licorice Dangers Explained Via Taiwanese Animation (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Last week, just in time for Halloween, the FDA released a report indicating that black licorice may lead to heart arrhythmia, confirming longstanding fears about the dangers of the anise-flavored root.

But you don't have to read through a boring scientific journal article to get the details on the dangers of licorice. Instead, you can watch a new video -- above -- from the prolific, speedy Taiwanese animators at NMA TV.
