    a couple is fine.. but if you eat too many you run the chance of cutting the lining of your intestins up.. (so dont eat them if you can help it)

    You can only eat the flesh inside.
    If you eat too many shells you will rupture the lining of your stomach, during digestion.
    You might as well eat glass.

    Buy Sunflower seeds without the shells.

    I wouldn't recommend eating the shells, but when I played baseball in HS, a fellow teammate used to eat them shell and all and nothing bad ever happened to him.

    I always eat them. I hate to break them open. My innards are just fine. Maybe I just chew 'em up real good. :)

    Me prefers Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, softer shell easier eats. Bar B Q or Chile... Yummmmmy. :D

    Use to chew em and then spit out shell.
    Naturally I did swallow quite a bit of shell, during busy sessions.
    Worse than a curry, if you know what I mean ;)
