Seeds of papaya are considered harmful as they are known to cause uterine contractions that lead to miscarriage, abortion, and abnormalities in infants. Papaya seed contains a compound called benzyl isothiocyanate, which can cause poisoning. They can also lead to esophagus damage, allergies in some cases and carotenemia too.
