Eating sunflower seed shells?

Are they safe to eat?

I hear that they can cut you up, clog of things in your body, etc. and that people needed surgery, almost dying from it etc.

But then I hear some people never have problems with eating the shells.

As long as I chew the shells enough will I be fine?

I eat seeds all of the time. . . never eat the shells though. One of my high school coaches ate a bunch of the shells one time and had to go to the hospital because of it. For me it's one of those "you could but there's really no point" things.

I have chewed up sunflower shells while the seeds were in them. CLog up your body in what way? That's absurd? If that happened and if they killed me then me and you wouldnt be here right now

I tried and the shells are far too salty for me. I chewed ten shells for two minutes and I still couldn't swallow it. YUCK!

I'm not sure why you'd want to tbh
When you chew them up all you end up with are a bunch of shards that are not very pleasant to swallow. I guess you could let them sit in your mouth long enough to soften up, but I don't really see the point.
I do like to scrape the black stuff off the outside with my teeth though >_>

Too sharp for me; they cut up my mouth.

Why would you want to eat them?
They say it takes all kinds--well, listen, man, it don't, but they're all here.
