not arsenic

Just to clarify, as far as I can determine, apple seeds do not contain arsenic. Its a common mistake though. They do contain cyanide in small doses which is actually the bit that kills the cancer cells. It comes in the form of a molecule that also contains 2 other things that actually prevent the healthy cells from absorbing the cyanide but the cancer cells 'suck it up' and die.

But dont take my word for some research for yourself.

Its quite fascinating and shocking too!

Hitler took cyanide and gave some to his dog and they didn't get cancer.

If you cut an apple in half you get the shape of a star, its a sign from the old Gods.
