13 plants that could kill you: Apples
I've eaten on average 2 apples a day for 40 years, always eating the core, sometimes crushing pips. 54yo and still going strong
How can someone who is supposed to be an expert contradict what researchers on cancer are saying. I like the comments and, I'm glad everyone else knows the difference between gas chambers cyanide and, cyanide in an apple seed. I put them in my my pulverizer. I like thick juices so I can get all my fruits and veggies for the day in a few pulpy delicious healthy drinks which got rid of my arthritis.
Yep, appleseeds being dangerous is a total hoax. It's interesting to see "researchers" purvey old wives' tales.
Robert Rodale was a well informed gentleman I had the pleasure of attending a few of his lectures on the farm many years ago !
Talk about some misinformation. The amount of cyanogenic compounds in apples seeds isn't enough to harm you unless you were sitting eating hands full of them.

I once heard of a man who liked apple seeds, saved them up and ate a whole cup at one time. He died. It is true, all plants are dangerous; it just depends on the dosage. If you are qualified, drop doses of a 'toxic' plant part is very beneficial. Many plants have antidotes to the poison if the whole plant is used.
