APRICOT KERNELS CAUSE SYMPTOMS OF CYANIDE POISONING BECAUSE THEY CONTAIN CYANIDE AND WILL POISON YOU

http://www.nytimes.com/1993/02/16/science/q-a-133693.html

From the article at the link above:

Apricot pits, for example, contain a compound called amygdalin, the supposedly active ingredient in laetrile, the discredited cancer drug, said Dr. Rodney Dietert. Amygdalin is a member of the class of chemicals called cyanogenic glycosides, meaning that it can be broken down into cyanide, glucose and benzaldehyde by an enzyme, he said.

A study of the toxicity levels of peaches and apricots clearly shows that 13 to 15 raw peach pit kernels would get you into the lethal range for adults, Dr. Margaret Dietert said.
