The skin of an apple is completely edible, but you may be putting your life at risk when you swallow the seed, accidental or intentionally.

See, the seed of an apple seeds contain amygdalin, a substance that releases cyanide into the blood stream when chewed and digested. Cyanide consists of a carbon atom triple-bonded to a nitrogen atom; it can be very deadly to thee human body depending on the amount taken in.

On a good side, you don't have to panic when you accidentally swallow an apple seed, apple seeds in small amounts do not contain enough cyanide to cause harm to the human body. However, it is always better to spit out the seeds to avoid any potential issues.

Cyanide can damage your heart and brain. It can also lead to coma and even death. But in an apple, it takes about 200 grinded seeds to deliver a fatal blow to a human. Still, it's highly advisable to avoid the seeds when eating an apple.

Peradventure to swallowed the seed of an apple, don't panic. According to research, a human has to take about 200 apple seeds before it becomes lethal. However, if you notice any form of dizziness, heavy heartbeats, vomiting, or headache after swallowing an apple seed, it's highly advisable that you visit a doctor immediately for check up.
