    An apple a day keeps the doctor away!

    Since childhood, we have come to know that apple is beneficial for health as it has more nutritional value than most other fruits. It can even reduce the risk of many ailments including cancer.

    But do you know that the seeds of apple contain an highly toxic component known as amygdalin? Amygdalin, when comes in contact with certain other things in our body, can form cyanide which is a poison and may cause many symptoms like nausea, vomiting, headache dizziness etc.

    So, next time when you eat an apple, don't forget to be careful to remove the seeds. Incidentally, amygdalin is found in the seeds of many other fruits like apricot, cherry, peach, plum etc. also

    True. Apple is good for a better health. Eating apple will increase the RBC in the blood and hemoglobin in iron will also increase. Many doctors advice all to take fruits more and especially apple. But as mentioned by the author eating seeds of apple is very dangerous. So what we have to do is cut apple in the centre and make it into four pieces. The centre portion of each piece is to be removed with knife so that all the seeds as well as the hard portion below the seeds also will get removed. It is very important to see that seeds are completely removed. Guava fruit is poor man's apple. If we can consume daily one guava fruit our health will be better. Here there is no big threat if you eat seeds also. But some people have indigestion if they eat unripe fruit. But one should keep in mind that the fruits now a days are not very reliable. so wash thoroughly before you eat any fruit.
    always confident
