Superfoods: Not All Health Food Is Healthy, Some Of It Will Kill You [2 Pics]
Submitted by: fancylad⚫ 1 year ago in
Organic? Raw? Vegan? Gluten-free? Kosher? How can something that looks so good for you kill you? Just more proof that if you call something organic, vegan, gluten-free and whatever buzz words the guy at Whole Foods is jabbering about can be packaged and sold -- even if it's not all that good for you.
Take for example, these raw, organic apricot kernels. Sure, vitamin B7 is good for you, but you can get it other ways other than from apricot kernels, especially if apricot kernels aren't 100 percent safe, as the warning on the package says...
WARNING: Sweet apricot kernels contain amygdalin (Vitamin B17) which can cause symptoms of cyanide poisoning when eaten in excess.
DO NOT EAT MORE THAN 8 SEEDS PER DAY. See a doctor immediately if you experience symptoms like nausea, fever, headache, or low blood pressure. Do not eat if you are pregnant or nursing. Not intended for children.
Sunfood literally fucking tells you their health food cause cyanide poisoning. Oh wait, no, my mistake, they tell you that they cause symptoms of cyanide poisoning. Well, you know what else causes symptoms of cyanide poisoning? Cyanide.
