any people may freak at the mention of eating apple seeds, cherry pits, or apricot seeds, as they contain cyanide. New research, however, suggests those seeds may be a cancer cure in waiting.
While it’s true that those seeds contain cyanide, most experts agree that it would take a whole lot of them to poison a person. And, in this case, there’s a lot more that we may not be adequately investigating.
In this case, what we should be looking at in our research is amygdalin, the compound that contains cyanide. New anecdotal evidence from Australia shows that eating apricot seeds in large quantities – dozens, daily, for months – may help eliminate cancer.
Here’s what we know: Amygdalin has four molecules – two glucone, one cyanide, and one benzaldyhide. Here’s what happens: Cancer cells attract amygdalin compounds, as they want the glucose, but the other two molecules – cyanide and benzaldyhide – end up killing cancer cells.
