Papaya Seed Risks
Papaya seeds, may induce toxicological damage in animals at high doses, according to the December 2003 issue of Life Sciences. Research presented in the February 2010 issue of the Journal of Ethnopharmacology shows that extracts from papaya seeds have a contraceptive effect in animals, but it is not known if the same is true for humans. However, the levels of these compounds in a normal serving of papaya seeds pose little health risk.
