Are Apple seeds good for you?

I enjoy eating them.

Apple seeds contain substances called cyanogenic glycosides (a cyanide containing compound) which could cause health problems if consumed in very high quantities. The truth is if you were to eat apple seeds in large quantities, they could kill you, but in most cases, the seeds pass through the digestive system without releasing significant amounts of cyanide unless you chew on them to release the toxin. Even if some poison is released from the seeds, your body has the capability of neutralizing small amounts of cyanide and you probably wouldn't experience serious effects unless you were to eat apple seeds in very high amounts.

No. If you eat to many theyll make you very sick. They contain cyanide, a deadky poison. Accidentally swallowing one or two isnt a big deal tho
