Did you know Cherry seeds are toxic?

I read this on a Food website, "Be wary and cautious of their seeds, which contain hydrogen cyanide, Cherry seeds that are crushed, chewed or even slightly injured can be a potential threat. Please consume wisely and remember, don't chew on the seeds.

I did not know this! Did you?
