factoid friday

mryukDid you know apple seeds contain just a little poison?  Its true.  Just a little cyanide.  Not enough to kill you, unless you ground up tons of them and ate them.  Its also present in cherry, apricot(which is ground up and turned into a pricey unapproved anti-cancer drug called Laetrile) and peach pits 🙂
