Peach seed poisoning

Peach seed poisoning: Introduction

Peach seed poisoning: Peach 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. Most parts of the peach plant contain the toxic chemical with the highest concentration in young leaves. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Peach seed poisoning is available below.
