Anybody tried the seeds?

"Papaya seeds have a deworming action. The seeds contain very small quantities of a toxic substance called carpine. In Indonesia for instance papaya seeds are allowed to dry and then they are ground and mixed with water and given to livestock. It is not suitable for people though as large quantities of the seed can lower the pulse rate and depress the nervous system."

I have also read that unripe papaya contains large amounts of papain in the rind and flesh. Papain is a protein-cleaving enzyme.
