i was told years ago when I was trying to get healthy
that apple seeds contain an ingrediant which is good for you that is
found in nothing else. is this bolgnie?
Rather possibly the exact opposite,
for more on prunasin:

Truthfully, apple seeds contain an ingredient which is very harmful for
Therefore, do NOT eat the apple seeds!
In fact, apple seeds, like the seeds of some other fruits in the rose
family such as peaches and bitter almonds, contain cyanide. It's part of
the apple's way of protecting its offspring. The level of cyanide is quite
low, but if you store up a whole lot of apple seds and eat them all at
once, you can ingest enought cyanide to hurt or even kill you.

I doubt it. How would the bologna get into the apple seeds?
slap! slap! slap!
Sorry! Anyway, I still doubt it. How many apple seeds do you want
to eat? Unless you want to eat piles, you'd need there to be
something in there which is not only good for you but exceedingly
potent, like a drug. But most natural drugs, e.g. the aspirin in
willow bark, are well known. It ain't highly likely something in
apple seeds has escaped everyone's attention for the past 5000 years,
not when there's a pile of money to be made from any successful new
drug. If there IS something powerful in apple seeds (vitamin C?), you
can probably get whatever it might be in a more effective form, just
like you can buy aspirin in a nice white concentrated tablet instead
of having to down 46 gallons of willow-bark tea, which would be vile.
