Dear Piet
In general, humans tend to discard the core and the pips of apples. The pips are reported to contain tiny amounts of cyanogenic acid (as is the case with cherry and apricot pips), which may cause health problems, particularly if you chew the pips. It is, thus safer not to eat the pips of apples.
