    Ok, so today i got lazy and swallowed the whole sunflower seed. It wasn't painful to swallow it, and i swallowed it easily. I didn't feel any pain.

    I'm asking this because i was researching on google and there were mixed opinions. So i'm not sure what i should do. Thanks to whoever helps.

    Pftt one seed. Try eating an entire packet. :p (Not entirely in one day however)

    Frankly, I haven't noticed anything bad as a result of eating the shells. Who knows if there's even any side effects.

    well your stomach acid will eat up the shells, but i dont find any real danger of eating sunflower seeds whole.

    The only bad thing I can think of is trying to sh*t out a bunch of torn up sharp sunflower seed shells. :D

    I'm pretty sure it's safe, but I wouldn't recommend. Sharp pieces with throat = hurts to swallow.

    I just rather pop 50 or so in the cheek, and then crack em one at a time.

    How can you be so lazy that you can't take the shell off of one seed?

    Plus I'm pretty sure all the sodium it has is more dangerous than swallowing the shell.

    Blisters my lips like hell.
