War on Fruit: Ban Apples, Peaches, Apricots and Cherries
Well the time has come to ban these fruits. People can die from cyanide, and there happens to be cyanide in the seeds of the above named fruits.
Well, not exactly, but the compound amygdalin will metabolize into cynide once mixed with our stomach acids, and that is the chemical that these seeds actually do contain.
People could make poisons that can take a life. People could eat these seeds and die, provided they eat enough of them.
The time has come. When our govenment has the right to keep cannabis illegal in order to protect us from ourselves, is it not fair that they outlaw apples and such? It seems to me that there i just as much potential to do harm with apples as there is with cannabis, marijuana, hemp, pot, weed, whatever you want to call it.
I feel like it is time for a "War on Fruit". We need to save our children.
If you buy into the ban on marijuana, then you must buy into the ban on fruit, period. Until marijuana is made legal, I am going on a campaign to make fruits with seeds containing amygdalin illegal. It only makes sense, right?
