Five dangers of sunflower seeds have been named, zakon.kz reports.
According to the endocrinologist and candidate of medical sciences Zuhra Pavlova, the seeds contain a huge amount of fatty acids, and Omega-6 prevails. Unlike healing Omega-3s, Omega-6s increase inflammation in the body and are the first to be absorbed.

Raw seeds contain vitamins and nutrients.

Sunflower seeds are a “dirty” product that can contain eggs of parasites and so on.
Also seeds spoil teeth. Moreover, the matter is not limited to small chips, often the cracks from the seeds go along the entire tooth.
