Apricot seeds can cause you some big problems

Apricot is generally considered as a good food item. It is loaded with nutrients and vitamins that are good for your skin, bones and brain. But you should be careful when eating apricots. A case report from British Medical Journal has shown that high consumption of apricot seeds can lead to poisoning.

The report came up after a 67-year-old man developed cyanide poisoning from consuming too much apricot seed extract.

Though the exact level of consumption required for the poisoning to kick in is debatable, several cases in the past also show that apricot seeds can cause some problems.
