Chokecherry seed poisoning

Chokecherry seed poisoning: Introduction

Chokecherry seed poisoning: Chokecherry 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. Chokecherry plants grow mainly in Northern America. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Chokecherry seed poisoning is available below.
