Death by Licorice? Unexpected Toxicity From Drug Products.

Far too often we hear of unanticipated illness and even death due to unexpected effects of ingredients in the foods or medicine we consume. Sometimes these are deliberate, with people consuming more than prescribed or mixing medications. But sometimes these are unintentional, with catastrophic impacts – such as the case of the black licorice. The IVT Network recently published a blog post Unexpected Toxicity From Drug Products on this very topic. Today we will discuss this case and many more as we discover the associated science with two of the authors Bernard Hsu and Paul Pluta.
