This may be a silly question, but I have always had a bit of a seed phobia ever since I heard they contain cyanide. Anyway, this morning I blended up some watermelon for juice and a couple of the black seeds got blended up in there. Is that ok? Whole seeds I don't mind so much, but chewed/blended seeds I have a concern about.
Dr. Brian Clement wrote one can blend them and eat them in something cos they have a component that is very good for eye sight.
From what ive heard apple, grape seeds and such contain a vitamin called amygdalin (b17). Apparently when its raw and unheated the intact vitamin will only release cyanide into tumors in the body. I think seeds from things like squash and melon are some of the most nutritious fresh seeds available.
Yes, B17 is amazing. My uncle cured his cancer using B17 with zero medical intervention. Some say it's a farce, but i saw it first hand and now eat seeds from my fruit regularly.
I routinely eat apple seeds, watermelon, and even smash cherry pits and use the seed inside. Research Amygadlin/B17 (common especially in apricot seeds). A close relative of mine used this to CURE (not treat, CURE) his cancer and since cancer seems to run in my family I take precautions by using this and also taking turmeric.
Most seeds of fruit in the Rose family of plants contain cyanide; apple, pear, and the Prunus species: peach, apricot, nectarine, plum, cherry, ... There are some seeds in the Rose family that are cyanide free: some apricots grown in Asia and almonds. The almond is a species of Prunus and is like an apricot where the fruit part is a dried up husk. When almonds go wild they revert to high cyanide seeds called bitter almonds.
All of the seeds of the melon and squash family of plants have seeds free of cyanide and are good to eat. Collect the seeds of any squash or melon, including watermelon, blend and strain thru a nylon mesh bag for a good seed milk.
hey that's awesome data, thanks Forest.
