Are Apple seeds arsenic?

Someone told me you can die from eating too many apple seeds.

technically, yes. I think it would have to be a lot, though. More than is in a single apple.

It tastes bad, why would someone eat them?

Papaya seeds are toxic.

Trace amount of arsenic in seeds like that

I heard they have a small amount of cyanide!

Turns out we were wrong and @Crystal-Cotton is right. They contain cyanide, not arsenic. Still, don’t eat them.
