Apricot kernels contain Laetrile, considered by some to have anti-cancer effects. Critics of Laetrile warn the public that eating apricot kernels is dangerous: They can make you sick and can even be fatal. The professional literature provides some evidence that negative effects can occur if you eat a lot of kernels at once, but unfortunately it tells us very little else.Fatal dose of apricot is 80 kernels to 560 kernels per day, and for a 140 pound woman, 65 kernels to per day 455 kernels.
