      Check out how much a cup of apple seeds weighs.  If you could find that article, I would like to see it.
      P.S.  If someone was going to eat a cup of apple seeds, he must be crazy, very bitter (go figure) and hard to swallow.

      A newspaper report said a cup of apple seeds killed a person who indulged on his birthday!
