How many calories is usually consumed, to be called binging?

Uncontrolled w/food: Bingeing is not measured in terms of the calories that are consumed.

Bing's are great!: Bing cherries are great. Actually, all the cherry varieties are wonderful fruit. Fortunately, cherries don't have anything to do with pimples, boils, or abscesses. For a single small pimple that breaks open and dries up on its own, no special treatment is needed. One can just wash it well and put some over-the-counter first-aid antibiotic ointment on it. Anything bigger should be seen by a doctor. ...Read more

After accidentally swallowing a cherry pit, how long does cyanide from a cherry pit stay in your system?

Exposure unlikely: If swallowed accidentally & not chewed, it will likely pass through your system mostly undigested within 3-4 days. The coatings of the pit are protective and a single intact pit would not transfer enough cyanide to cause harm. The body would remove any trace chemical over time. If you chew them up. it would be potentially deadly. ...Read more

Fruit seeds: If you accidentally eat a cherry pit in a pie or swallow an apple seed or two, you'll be fine. If you eat enough apple seeds or cherry pits, you could die.

Made a cherry smoothie, pitted the cherries but while drinking it noticed some broken pieces of a cherry pit (likely missed 1) dumped it. Will I be ok?

Made a cherry smoothie, pitted the cherries but while drinking it noticed some broken pieces of a cherry pit (likely missed 1) dumped it. Will I be ok?

No problem: People swallow cherry pits (by accident) all the time without problems. I'm guessing you've heard cherry pits contain amygdalin, a substance that is broken down into cyanide. Apple seeds, almonds and apricot pits also have amygdalin. You'd probably need to eat 100 or more ground cherry pits to get a toxic dose. Some believe that small amounts of amygdalin prevent cancer. Next time don't dump it! ...Read more

There are several treatment options, but the main thing is to limit the absorption of the chemicals from the seeds. Basically, ...Read more

Is it dangerous to eat cherry pits? The reason I ask is because I put several cherries in the NutriBullet to make a fruit drink.

Is it dangerous to eat cherry pits? The reason I ask is because I put several cherries in the NutriBullet to make a fruit drink.

Don't eat cherry pit: Cherry pits contain cyanide compounds, which are poisonous. If one swallows a cherry seed by accident, it's no big deal because the seed stays intact and should pass right through. Grinding up the seeds however and then consuming them could lead to toxic effects. Cyanide works pretty quickly to cause severe symptoms which can include death. Hope you didn't grind up too much of those cherry pits. ...Read more

You should be fine: There is a lot of room for things to pass through our digestive tract, including cherry pits. Once it gets through your esophagus (that takes only a few minutes) it should pas through without noticing it. Well, maybe you will notice it in your stool. From mouth to toilet depends on how fast your digestion is but usually 8-24 hours is about right. ...Read more
