Cherry laurel seed poisoning

Cherry laurel seed poisoning: Introduction

Cherry laurel seed poisoning: Wild cherry seeds contain a chemical called amygdalin which breaks down into cyanide in the human body. The toxic chemicals are not released if the seed remains intact and therefore poisoning usually occurs if the seeds are crushed and eaten. Accidental ingestion is very unusual. Wild cherry plants grow mainly in eastern Europe, Western Asia and Britain. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Cherry laurel seed poisoning is available below.
