How Many Kernels Should I eat ?
According to the Ultimate Guide to B17 there is a simple rule you can apply. The number of maximum kernels to eat at any one time should be based on the following:
1 kernel for every 5kg (10 pounds) of body weight at any one time
For example – General health and Well Being:
if your body weight is 50kg then you would eat no more than 10 apricot kernels at any one time.
if your body weight is 70kg then you would eat no more than 14 apricot kernels at any one time.
if your body weight is 100kg then you would eat no more than 20 apricot kernels at any one time.
This is called the maintenance dose. In other words it is how many apricot kernels is considered a maximum to eat at any one time.

Are there Any Side Effects or Can Eating Apricot Kernels hurt me?
Yes there can be some minor side effects, and generally no they cannot hurt you unless you do something with them that is irrational and unreasonable.
For example I had an older senior gentleman phone me wanting to know if it was normal for the kernels to make you drunk? I knew straight away he had eaten too many and was experiencing strong bouts of nausia. I asked him how many he was eating? He replied 70 – 80 at once! That’s way too much and the bitterness of the kernels will have an effect. He only weighed about 65kg.
The most unpleasant side effect can be Nausia and feeling dizzy. If this occurs its your body telling you its too much so cut down and build up the amount you want to take slowly!
Another side effect that occurs from time to time is your tongue can go numb. If you eat and crunch on too many kernels on their own all at once the bitterness will make your tongue go numb for a while. Once again common sense should prevail. Eat just a few at a time and if possible with some fruit.

If it does then start off again but at very small quantities.
