Benefits of Apples
Proof of Benefits
Amygdalin has not been proven in any welldesigned clinical trials to reduce the risk of developing cancer or to cure existing cancer. The active ingredient in apple seeds as well as apricot, cherry and peach pits is amygdalin, a mixture of cyanide and sugar that breaks down into hydrogen cyanide when chewed. Some alternative medicine practitioners consider amygdalin a cancerfighting agent, but there is no clinical proof of this benefit.
