A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN B 12 in the diet, characterized by megaloblastic anemia. Since vitamin B 12 is not present in plants, humans have obtained their supply from animal products, from multivitamin supplements in the form of pills, and as additives to food preparations. A wide variety of neuropsychiatric abnormalities is also seen in vitamin B 12 deficiency and appears to be due to an undefined defect involving myelin synthesis. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p848)
VITAMIN B 6 refers to several PICOLINES (especially PYRIDOXINE; PYRIDOXAL; & PYRIDOXAMINE) that are efficiently converted by the body to PYRIDOXAL PHOSPHATE which is a coenzyme for synthesis of amino acids, neurotransmitters (serotonin, norepinephrine), sphingolipids, and aminolevulinic acid. During transamination of amino acids, pyridoxal phosphate is transiently converted into PYRIDOXAMINE phosphate. Although pyridoxine and Vitamin B 6 are still frequently used as synonyms, especially by medical researchers, this practice is erroneous and sometimes misleading (EE Snell; Ann NY Acad Sci, vol 585 pg 1, 1990). Most of vitamin B6 is eventually degraded to PYRIDOXIC ACID and excreted in the urine.
Solid dosage forms, of varying weight, size, and shape, which may be molded or compressed, and which contain a medicinal substance in pure or diluted form. (Dorland, 28th ed)

A mass spectrometry technique used for analysis of nonvolatile compounds such as proteins and macromolecules. The technique involves preparing electrically charged droplets from analyte molecules dissolved in solvent. The electrically charged droplets enter a vacuum chamber where the solvent is evaporated. Evaporation of solvent reduces the droplet size, thereby increasing the coulombic repulsion within the droplet. As the charged droplets get smaller, the excess charge within them causes them to disintegrate and release analyte molecules. The volatilized analyte molecules are then analyzed by mass spectrometry.

The cyanogenic glucoside, prunasin (D-mandelonitrile-beta-D-glucoside), is a novel inhibitor of DNA polymerase beta. (1/26)

A DNA polymerase beta (pol. beta) inhibitor has been isolated independently from two organisms; a red perilla, Perilla frutescens, and a mugwort, Artemisia vulgaris. These molecules were determined by spectroscopic analyses to be the cyanogenic glucoside, D-mandelonitrile-beta-D-glucoside, prunasin. The compound inhibited the activity of rat pol. beta at 150 microM, but did not influence the activities of calf DNA polymerase alpha and plant DNA polymerases, human immunodefficiency virus type 1 reverse transcriptase, calf terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase, or any prokaryotic DNA polymerases, or DNA and RNA metabolic enzymes examined. The compound dose-dependently inhibited pol. beta activity, the IC(50) value being 98 microM with poly dA/oligo dT(12-18) and dTTP as the DNA template and substrate, respectively. Inhibition of pol. beta by the compound was competitive with the substrate, dTTP. The inhibition was enhanced in the presence of fatty acid, and the IC(50) value decreased to approximately 40 microM. In the presence of C(10)-decanoic acid, the K(i) value for substrate dTTP decreased by 28-fold, suggesting that the fatty acid allowed easier access of the compound to the substrate-binding site.  (+info)

Pharmacological properties of traditional medicines (XXVII). Interaction between Ephedra Herb and Gypsum under hyperthermal conditions in rats. (2/26)

There are many important considerations in the interactions among the herbal constituents in a prescription of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Ephedra Herb [Chinese characters: see text] (Eph) is described a warm and acrid agent in TCM. The combination of Eph and Gypsum [Chinese characters: see text] (Eph-Gyp) shows specific actions in patients with different body temperatures. Previous reports suggested that Gypsum prevents the thermogenesis effect induced by ephedrine at an ambient temperature of 22 degrees C. In this investigation, the properties of Eph-Gyp in hyperthermal rats were studied in detail. It was shown that Gypsum Extract (GyE) enhanced the thermogenesis of Eph in hyperthermal rats, although not in normal rats. The results support not only the opposite actions of Eph-GyE but also the clinical differences in the symptomatic patterns of body temperature for Makyo-Kanseki-To [Chinese characters: see text] and Dai-Seiryu-To [Chinese characters: see text].  (+info)

Reverse-phase HPLC separation of D-amygdalin and neoamygdalin and optimum conditions for inhibition of racemization of amygdalin. (3/26)

In boiling aqueous solution, D-amygdalin usually begins to convert into neoamygdalin in 3 min and more than 30% of the initial D-amygdalin is found as neoamygdalin after 30 min. In this report, we establish methods for simple HPLC analysis and the inhibition of D-amygdalin conversion. D-Amygdalin and its conversion product, neoamygdalin, were clearly separated on reverse-phase column chromatography by an optimized eluent of 10 mM sodium phosphate buffer (pH 3.8) containing 6% acetonitrile. Linearity for analyzing D-amygdalin and neoamygdalin was observed in the range from 0.05 to 0.5 mM. The detection limits for D-amygdalin and neoamygdalin were ca. 5 microM per injected amount. We found that D-amygdalin conversion was completely inhibited by adding 0.05% citric acid to the aqueous solution before boiling. To prevent the loss of pharmaceutical potency of Tonin, we applied this method to measure the conversion rate of D-amygdalin. We confirmed that D-amygdalin conversion in Tonin is effectively inhibited by acidic boiling solution with 0.1% citric acid.  (+info)

Failure of amygdalin to arrest B16 melanoma and BW5147 AKR leukemia. (4/26)

Parenteral amygdalin was found to be ineffective in C57BL/6 mice with B16 melanoma and in AKR mice with BW5147 lymphatic leukemia, in doses ranging from 50 to 5000 mg/kg.  (+info)

Cellulase of Neurospora crassa. (5/26)

Mycelia and ungerminated conidia of Neurospora crassa were found to secrete extracellular endocellulase (EC 3.2.1.4). A simple induction system of potassium phosphate buffer (ph 6.0) plus inducer relied on the internal metabolic reserves of conicia or mycelia to provide energy and substrates for protein synthesis. Buffer concentration for optimum enzyme production was 100 mM, but at higher buffer concentrations enzyme production was inhibited. Cellobiose was clearly the best inducer, with an optimum effect from 0.05 to 1 mM. In deionized water, cellulase remained mostly associated with the cell, but a variety of salts stimulated the release of cellulase into the medium.  (+info)

Positive selection on a high-sensitivity allele of the human bitter-taste receptor TAS2R16. (6/26)

BACKGROUND: During periods of human expansion into new environments, recognition of bitter natural toxins through taste may have conferred an important selective advantage. The G protein-coupled receptor encoded by TAS2R16 mediates response to salicin, amygdalin, and many bitter beta-glucopyranosides. beta-glucopyranosides are ubiquitous in nature, with many having a highly toxic cyanogenic activity. RESULTS: We examined evidence for natural selection on the human receptor TAS2R16 by sequencing the entire coding region, as well as part of the 5' and 3' UTRs, in 997 individuals from 60 human populations. We detected signatures of positive selection, indicated by an excess of evolutionarily derived alleles at the nonsynonymous site K172N and two linked sites and significant values of Fay and Wu's H statistics in 19 populations. The estimated age range for the common ancestor of the derived N172 variant is 78,700-791,000 years, placing it in the Middle Pleistocene and before the expansion of early humans out of Africa. Using calcium imaging in cells expressing different receptor variants, we showed that N172 is associated with an increased sensitivity to salicin, arbutin, and five different cyanogenic glycosides. CONCLUSION: We have detected a clear signal of positive selection at the bitter-taste receptor gene TAS2R16. We speculate that the increased sensitivity that is shown toward harmful cyanogenic glycosides and conferred by the N172 allele may have driven the signal of selection at an early stage of human evolution.  (+info)

Amygdalin inhibits genes related to cell cycle in SNU-C4 human colon cancer cells. (7/26)

AIM: The genes were divided into seven categories according to biological function; apoptosis-related, immune response-related, signal transduction-related, cell cycle-related, cell growth-related, stress response-related and transcription-related genes. METHODS: We compared the gene expression profiles of SNU-C4 cells between amygdalin-treated (5 mg/mL, 24 h) and non-treated groups using cDNA microarray analysis. We selected genes downregulated in cDNA microarray and investigated mRNA levels of the genes by RT-PCR. RESULTS: Microarray showed that amygdalin downregulated especially genes belonging to cell cycle category: exonuclease 1 (EXO1), ATP-binding cassette, sub-family F, member 2 (ABCF2), MRE11 meiotic recombination 11 homolog A (MRE11A), topoisomerase (DNA) I (TOP1), and FK506 binding protein 12-rapamycin-associated protein 1 (FRAP1). RT-PCR analysis revealed that mRNA levels of these genes were also decreased by amygdalin treatment in SNU-C4 human colon cancer cells. CONCLUSION: These results suggest that amygdalin have an anticancer effect via downregulation of cell cycle-related genes in SNU-C4 human colon cancer cells, and might be used for therapeutic anticancer drug.  (+info)

Isolation and quantitation of amygdalin in Apricot-kernel and Prunus Tomentosa Thunb. by HPLC with solid-phase extraction. (8/26)

Apricot-kernel and Prunus Tomentosa Thunb. are traditional Chinese herb medicines that contain amygdalin as their major effective ingredient. In this report, three methods for the extraction of amygdalin from the medicinal materials are compared: ultrasonic extraction by methanol, Soxhlet extraction by methanol, and reflux extraction by water. The results show that reflux extraction water containing 0.1% citric acid is the best option. The optimal reflux is 2.5 h and water bath temperature is 60 degrees C. The solid-phase extraction method using C18 and multiwalled carbon nanotube as adsorbents is established the pretreatment of reflux extract, and the result shows that the two adsorbents have greater adsorptive capacity for amygdalin and good separation effect. In order to quantitate amygdalin in Apricot-kernel and Prunus Tomentosa Thunb., a reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography method using methanol-water (15:85, for 30 min and pure methanol after 30 min) as mobile phase is developed and a good result is obtained.  (+info)

Processing is a traditional pharmacy technology based on traditional Chinese medicine theory. The traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) ingredients should be processed before being used as a medicine. Processed bitter almonds are widely used in the clinic in TCM for the treatment of cough and asthma. In this work the amygdalin profile of three producing areas in China was determined, with respect to three differently processed bitter almond products: raw, stir-fried and scalded. Identification of the compounds was done by using high performance liquid chromatography coupled to electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (HPLC-ESI-MS/MS). Results indicated that amygdalin, neoamygdalin and amygdalin amide were identified in the different processed bitter almonds. Meanwhile, amygdalin was used as a standard to calculate the quantification of amygdalin and the concentration ratio of neoamygdalin and total amygdalin by HPLC-DAD. The data suggested that composition of amygdalin isomers in bitter almonds was
In the present study, we noted that treatment of the RCC cell lines Caki-1, KTC-26 and A498 with amygdalin caused significant inhibition of cell growth and proliferation. Similar growth reduction after amygdalin application has been noted in non-small cell lung cancer (19) and bladder cancer cells (18) in vitro, as well as cervical cancer cells in vivo (20). Based on our data we conclude that the inhibition of growth induced by amygdalin is not due to apoptosis or necrosis. Other cancer cells such as cervical, bladder and prostate cancer cells react to amygdalin with apoptosis, leading to growth inhibition (18,20,21). Thus, the mode of action of amygdalin seems to depend on the type of cancer.. Although inhibition of growth in all three RCC cell lines was accompanied by changes in the percentage of cells in different cell cycle phases, the changes were not homogeneous. Treatment of Caki-1 and A498 cells with amygdalin caused an increase in G0/G1-phase cells by reducing the S- (Caki-1 and A498) ...
Prunasin is a cyanogenic glycoside related to amygdalin. Chemically, it is the glucoside of (R)-mandelonitrile. Prunasin is found in species in the genus Prunus such as Prunus japonica or P. maximowiczii and in bitter almonds. It is also found in leaves and stems of Olinia ventosa, O. radiata, O. emarginata and O. rochetiana and in Acacia greggii. It is also found in dandelion coffee, a coffee substitute. Sambunigrin, a diastereomer of prunasin derived from (S)-mandelonitrile instead of it the (R)-isomer, has been isolated from leaves of the elder tree (Sambucus nigra) Prunasin is hydrolyzed to produce hydrogen cyanide. Plants containing prunasin may therefore be toxic to animals, particularly ruminants. Prunasin beta-glucosidase is an enzyme that uses (R)-prunasin and H2O to produce D-glucose and mandelonitrile. Amygdalin beta-glucosidase is an enzyme that uses (R)-amygdalin and H2O to produce (R)-prunasin and D-glucose. Sanchez-Perez, R.; Belmonte, F. S.; Borch, J.; Dicenta, F.; Møller, B. ...
Amygdalin has been advocated by some as a cure or a preventative for cancer, but due to a lack of scientifically accepted evidence of its efficacy, it has not been approved for this use by the United States Food and Drug Administration.[3] The U.S. governments National Institutes of Health reports that two clinical trials with laetrile have been published. One Phase I study found that amygdalin caused minimal side effects; the side effects that were seen were similar to the symptoms of cyanide poisoning. One Phase II study with 175 patients had some patients reporting improvements in symptoms, but all patients showed cancer progression 7 months after completing treatment, and it was determined no further tests were necessary. While no double-blind clinical trials may have been conducted, a clinical trial was carried out in 1982 by the Mayo Clinic[4] and three other U.S. cancer centers under NCI sponsorship. Laetrile and metabolic therapy were administered as recommended by their ...

The judges of this competition? Our dean and two professors. The audience? Our entire class.. The stakes were high.. We had two weeks to prepare. All I knew about Laetrile at the time was that Steve McQueen, the actor, had gone to Mexico to buy this drug as a last ditch effort to treat his hopeless cancer. I also had a vague idea Laetrile was made from ground up apricot pits.. I headed for the stacks. It was the year before the legal research online search tool, LEXIS, was introduced to our school, so we lived in the law library. I started by learning about Laetrile. Turns out that the product derives from amygdalin (from the ancient Greek amygdalin meaning almond.) First investigated in 1830, amygdalin is a glycoside (molecule bonded to sugar) isolated from the seeds of a tree known as bitter almonds. Beginning in the early 1950s, both amygdalin and Laetrile (a modified form or amygdalin), also called Vitamin B although neither are vitamins) were promoted as cures for cancer.. When I did my ...

Although the NCI (National Cancer Institute) mailing had not been designed to uncover negative case reports, 220 physicians submitted data on more than 1,000 patients who had received Laetrile without any beneficial response. In July 1980, the NCI undertook clinical trials of 178 cancer patients who received Laetrile, vitamins and enzymes at the Mayo Clinic and three other prominent cancer centers. The study included patients for whom no other treatment had been effective or for whom no proven treatment was known. All patients had tumor masses that could easily be measured, but most of the patients were in good physical condition. Since Laetrile proponents were unable to agree on the formula or testing protocol for Laetrile, NCI decided to use a preparation that corresponded to the substance distributed by the major Mexican supplier, American Biologics. The preparation was supplied by the NCI Pharmaceutical Resources Branch and verified by a variety of tests. The dosage of Laetrile was based on ...

While it holds true that those seeds include cyanide, the majority of professionals concur that it would take a great deal of them to toxic an individual.

Advocates for laetrile assert that there is a conspiracy between the US Food and Drug Administration, the pharmaceutical industry and the medical community, including the American Medical Association and the American Cancer Society, to exploit the American people, and especially cancer patients.[29]. Advocates of the use of laetrile have also changed the rationale for its use, first as a treatment of cancer, then as a vitamin, then as part of a holistic nutritional regimen, or as treatment for cancer pain, among others, none of which have any significant evidence supporting its use.[29]. Despite the lack of evidence for its use, laetrile developed a significant following due to its wide promotion as a pain-free treatment of cancer as an alternative to surgery and chemotherapy that have significant side effects. The use of laetrile led to a number of deaths.[29] The FDA and AMA crackdown, begun in the 1970s, effectively escalated prices on the black market, played into the conspiracy ...
Abstract: Consumer complaints received by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in August 2010 about raw organic almonds tasting
Amygdalin is extracted from almond cake by boiling alcohol; on evaporation of the solution and the addition of ether, amygdalin is precipitated as white minute crystals.
One needs to be on a good organic diet while avoiding all processed foods when treating cancer. Sugar is an absolute no-no for any cancer treatment. It just feeds the cancer cells. Sugar can allow cancer cells to thrive while ignoring amygdalin`s poisons, leaving too many healthy cells with the burden of avoiding any incidental cyanide breakdowns from abundant amygdalin ...
While many have written about the internal disease-fighting benefits of amygdalin, some have also done research on how it can help the skin. Amygdalin in the form of apricot kernel oil can be an amazing moisturizer. It can exfoliate the skin and can significantly help clear up acne, since it prevents the buildup of sebum in the glands. Sebum build-up is usually the cause of oily skin. Apricot kernel oil has been shown to help balance sebum production. This oil is also a dandruff-reducer. Because of its high antioxidant content, it helps protect against oxidative stress. It has anti-aging properties and can help to reduce age spots as well. But thats not all. According to several studies, apricot kernel oil can also clear up inflammation that can lead to psoriasis. A 2016 Chinese investigation found that the same apoptotic effects that target cancer cells also make apricot seed kernels effective against cellular pathways which lead to this condition [9]. ...

In organic chemistry, mandelonitrile is the cyanohydrin derivative of benzaldehyde. Small amounts of mandelonitrile occur in the pits of some fruits. Mandelonitrile is the aglycone part of the cyanogenic glycosides prunasin and amygdalin. The naturally occurring (R)-(+) enantiomer finds use as an intermediate in the preparation of optically active α-hydroxy carboxylic acids, α-hydroxy aldehydes, α-hydroxy ketones, and 2-amino alcohols. Mandelonitrile can break down into cyanide and benzaldehyde, a reaction that can be catalyzed by the enzyme mandelonitrile lyase. Racemic mandelonitrile may be prepared similar to many other cyanohydrins. In a one pot reaction, benzaldehyde is reacted with sodium bisulfite to give the corresponding adduct, which further reacts with aqueous sodium cyanide to give the racemic product: Sigma-Aldrich product page The Merck Index (12th ed.). 1996.

I have always been told that almonds are a delicious healthy snack. However, what a lot of Americans dont know is that their are actually 2 different types of almonds, and while sweet almonds are indeed a delicious snack, its cousin bitter almonds has a different story.
In 1832 bitter-almond oil was supposed to be to bitter almonds what a hundred and one other essential oils are to their vegetable sources. Of its chemistry nothing was known except the fact that it contains loosely combined prussic acid, and that, when kept for a long time, it is liable to deposit a crystalline solid, as various other essential oils do. Liebig and WT6hler, being struck by the absence from even powdered bitter almonds of the intense smell characteristic of the oil, set about tracing the latter to its origin, and soon solved the question. In 1830 Robiquet and Boutron-Charlard had succeeded in extracting from bitter almonds a crystal-line nitrogenous solid, soluble without decomposition in alcohol and in water, which they called amygdaline. What Liebig and Wohler found was that, when bitter-almond meal is mashed up with water, this amygdaline, by the action of the water and a ferment (common to both sweet and bitter almonds), breaks up into sugar, prussic acid, and bitter-almond ...
Cyanide is commonly thought of as a gas, but you also can be poisoned by it if you ingest wild cherry syrup, prussic acid, bitter almond oil, or large amounts of apricot pits. Cherry seeds, peach and plum pits, corn, chickpeas, cashews, and some other fruits and vegetables contain cyanogenic (i.e., cyanide-forming) glycosides (such as amygdalin) that release hydrogen cyanide when chewed or digested. As a result, some cyanide can also be found in fruit jams that contain these pit and pip extracts, such as quince. However, since the concentration of cyanide in these compounds is small, accidental cyanide poisoning from a food source is rare. But, if the correct materials are deliberately concentrated it can make an effective poison, as the Romans and Egyptians knew. They used to grind up peach kernels to make poisons ...
Amygdalin-B17 is used in infusion therapies and in natural chemotherapies. Amygdalin, Laetrile or B17 is a natural substance, which can be found in apricot stones, but B17 is also present in stones from peaches, nectarines, cherries, plums or apples and is also present in buckwheat, broccoli, spinach, cauliflower or cashew nuts.. From a chemical point of view, B17 consists of one molecule benzaldehyde (which is a painkiller) and one molecule hydrogen cyanide (cyanhydric acid).. Healthy cells are not affected by this process as they contain an enzyme called Rhodanese. The Rhodanese enzyme can convert cyanhydric acid (present within B17) into thiocyanate. Thiocyanate has positive effects on the organism as thiocyanate lowers the blood pressure and is a substance which the organism uses to produce the nerve nutrition B12..

Why do so many food plants contain cyanide? There are two answers, Olsen says. Cyanide acts as a primitive pesticide that discourages insects that feed on plants. The very earliest farmers, selecting plants to bring into cultivation, might have found these clean plants particularly attractive. By selecting plants that hadnt been chewed up by insects, they may have inadvertently selected ones that were cyanogenic.. But the second and perhaps more important reason is that as plant toxins go, cyanide is a manageable one. The cyanide in apples and peaches, for example, is in their seeds and pits, which usually are discarded.. In addition, Olsen says, even if an edible plant part contains the poison, it is easy to get rid of by crushing the plant then washing the mash. Crushing releases the water-soluble cyanide, which is carried off in the water.. Disabling the genes that code for cyanide production also is straightforward. It took only one genetic mutation, for example, to turn the toxic bitter ...

In the previous communication of this series (No. XII, 1908, B, Vol. 80, pp. 321-329) the contention was advanced that emulsinprepared from sweet almonds contains at least three distinct enzymes, viz., amygdalase, a β-glucase and gluco-lactase: the first of these, amygdalase, being the enzyme by which amygdalin is resolved into glucose and Fiscliers glucoside, β-glucase that by which β-glucosides are hydrolysed, gluco-lactase that which hydrolyses milk sugar. Meanwhile the striking discovery has been made by Rosenthaler that emulsin has the property of inducing the formation of dextro-rotatory benzylidenecyanhydrol-such as may be obtained from amygdalin-from benzaldehyde and hydrogen cyanide; this raises the question whether there may not also be present in emulsin a specific enzyme capable of operating on the cyanophoric radicle of amygdalin and of resolving it into hydrogen cyanide and benzaldehyde. To avoid periphrasis this hypothetical enzyme may be spoken of as benzcyancise. ...
Trypsin inhibitors. Trypsin inhibitors are a type of anti-nutritional factors that can inhibit the activities of some digestive enzymes in human intestines and hinder our dietary intake of nutrients. Soya beans contain trypsin inhibitors. Nonetheless, trypsin inhibitors can be destroyed by soaking the soya beans well and cooking them thoroughly in boiling water.. Cyanogenic glycosides. Cyanogenic glycosides occur naturally in over 2 000 plant species, quite a number of which are food plants. Different types of cyanogenic glycosides may be found in different cyanogenic food plants, for example, taxiphyllin in bamboo shoots, and linamarin in cassava. Cyanogenic glycosides per se are relatively non-toxic. However, upon human consumption of cyanogenic plants, non-toxic cyanogenic glycosides will be decomposed into toxic hydrogen cyanides by hydrolysis in the intestinal tracts. The potential toxicity of a cyanogenic plant depends primarily on its capacity to produce hydrogen cyanides. Cyanide ...

Problem statement: Two cancer patients were treated with Vernonia amygdalina (V. amygdalina) leaf extract and leaf powder. The leaf extract of V amygdalina was administered orally for 9 months to the first patient in response to his reception of a medical diagnosis of having traces of prostate cancer. Approach: This patient was also over weight by 40 kg. The V. amygdalina treatment eliminated the traces of prostate cancer tissue and caused the patient to lose 25 Kg excess body fat. Results: During the treatment, the excess fat elimination by V. amygdalina leaf extract usually occurred within 2 sec, 2 min of V. amygdalina extract intake. Cancer diagnostic screening tests conducted on the patient at the end of the 9 months V. amygdalina treatment showed no traces of prostate cancer tissues in the patient for 5 years. The prostate cancerous tissues re-emerged and restablished themselves after 4 years of the V. amygdalina treatment. The patient took hospital-based orthodox treatment for one year and found

Citrus peel intake lowers skin cancer risk. Also, from another speaker who successfully treated a cancerous tumor on her dog, she reports that benzaldehyde, found in figs and bitter almond essential oil, interferes with the uptake of nutrients to cancer cells without harming healthy cells. Bitter almond is difficult to work with, as it is hard to find it in a non-synthetic form, and unless it has had the prussic acid removed, it is highly toxic. So it looks like we should eat plenty of citrus and figs to help protect ourselves from developing or a recurrence of cancer, especially in the breasts. ...

Spending time outside and with nature benefits us mentally and physically. While outdoors, whether hiking, biking, playing or gardening, contact with certain plants may result in skin reactions, called phytodermatitis. This review covers the more common toxic plant encounters in B.C. for which pharmacists may be called upon for advice.. Handling or brushing against stinging nettle (Urtica diocica and Urtica gracilis) causes tiny stinging hairs (trichomes) to break at their tip, exposing needle-like points. The points penetrate the skin causing mechanical irritation and release chemicals including histamine, acetylcholine and serotonin. Immediate intense burning and stinging ensues. This may be followed in minutes to hours by urticarial rash, pruritus, vesicles, numbness and/or tingling. It is not surprising that the term urticaria comes from the genus name Urtica. Initial decontamination and symptomatic and supportive treatment may be found in Tables 1 and 2. Most symptoms subside within 1 ...

Cyanide, also known as hydrocyanic acid, has a molecular formula HCN and its molecular weight is 27.03 g/mol. HCNs boiling point is 25.6°C (78.1°F). Hydrogen cyanide was first isolated from the pigment Prussian blue; hence another alternative name is prussic acid. In the 1800s, cyanide was given its modern name from the English word cyan, which means a shade of blue. Hydrogen cyanide and its potassium and sodium salts have been used as fumigants, insecticides, metal polishes, and in gold/silver electroplating solutions. Cyanide vapor can be detected by a characteristic almond odor, but it is estimated that up to approximately 50% of the human population cannot detect this odor due to a recessive genetic trait. Cyanide can be found in trace levels in the human body as a result of normal metabolic processes, as well as from eating a diet high in cyanogenic foodstuffs (e.g. apples, apricots, bitter almonds, and cherries) and smoking cigarettes. ...

The Health Concerns of Flaxseeds. For sure, the health benefits of consuming flaxseeds far outweigh its concerns, but it is important for you to know what these health concerns are before supplementing your diet with flaxseeds.. Flaxseeds contain an agent called cyanogenic glycosides, a chemical that occurs in over 2,000 plants. These compounds are part of the sugar molecules in the plant and convert to cyanide, a poison, in the human gut. If you consume too much of these compounds from plants you could become very ill, or it could be fatal.. However, you would have to consume a huge amount, 200-300 ppm, in a short period of time, for these compounds to adversely affect you as the human body rapidly breaks down cyanide compounds within 30 minutes. A lethal dose would be 0.5mg to 3.5 mg per kilogram of body weight in 30 minutes.. Even though it is highly unlikely anyone would intake a fatal dose of these compounds in using flaxseeds, it is important to be careful giving them to small children and ...
Grains and seed crops, such as wheat and peanuts, which are particularly attractive to animal and insect herbivores, often produce cyanogenic glycosides that release hydrogen cyanide as the tissues are digested. This compound inhibits cellular respiration, thus killing the herbivore. In each case members of a plant population are consumed by the herbivore, but future generations are spared by the loss ...
