Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Originally, it was the main ingredient in root beer. At some point the medical community discovered that if you could drink several hundred gallons of sassafras extract in two minutes you had better odds at getting some obscure disease. So sassafras content was reduced or cancelled from some root beers. However, sugar content in root beer has gone up over the decades with no apparent outcry, myself excepted.
