That's so cool!
I loved that!! Awesome find!
I like this sort of thing, knowing the LD/50 (lethal dose for 50% of samples) gives you a bit of a guideline to work with.
Seeing the video reminded me of this: Man nearly dies after eating cherry stones
If you don't look at the article, cherry seeds metabolize in the body from amygdalin into hydrogen cyanide (HCN)
Bad times, but knowledge is power.
Further reading is you can isolate amygdalin with ether (engine start fluid) after evaporating the ether the precipitate is amygdalin (white powder, very dangerous)
Cherry pits too huh? I know peaches, plums and nectarines have pits that you can extract cyanide from. I bet it's probably all pitted fruits. I found out about the peach pits when the EPA classified a lot in town that had once been the site of a business that used cyanide for some reason and the ground was contaminated. They processed the first few inches of top soil and then planted the whole lot with peach trees. Evidently the trees clean the deep soil better than any artificial process they could come up with.
There was an episode of Deadly Women on the ID channel that featured a woman that extracted the cyanide from peach pits and killed several family members. She almost got away with it because they could show where she had bought the cyanide. Tricky, tricky woman. If I remember right it was her pies or preserves that gave her away.
this one! i was stunned, why would you eat cherry seeds? If you can't eat it first go, don't do it haha.
Wow! Totally worth the watch. Thank you for this @EvansvilleJill
The liquor one seems off. One gallon of vodka weighs around 8 lbs so 2.2 is only a little over a quarter gallon. I've consumed this much in an evening. Obviously not all at once.
