Thanks for the reminder - I need to dehydrate bananas and add them to our supply. Probably should do it sooner rather than later, as the idea of waiting for 'in season' foods to come down in price probably doesn't apply anymore (inflation will negate the difference in the time it takes for bananas to be in season).

Bananas was one of the first things I dehydrated. My biggest problem now is staying out of them. :rolleyes:

Banana is source of dynamic energy

This is right Banana is a source of getting dynamic energy.you are absolutely correct.nutrition of the banana that works for many women? Many people give up on different diet programs because a lot of these programs taste bland and so many people tend to cheat on the course. This is because many of these so-called weight loss plans are based on low-calorie intake, which is understandably lacking in taste for many.

Yuk. *ahem*

Anyway, If you get a muscle cramp eating a banana will help it go away. I believe it's the potassium that does it.

I like banana's too but I almost choked this week when a doctor on TV discussing the radiation in Japan said something like " It's about as much radiation as you get from a few days in the sun or eating a banana!" :eek:

I wonder what he meant by that?

Potassium is radioactive, bananas are a rich source of potassium :)

I have been prone to cramps in my legs all my life. I can say that this does indeed help. Also makes you less attractive to mosquitoes looking for a meal! :2thumb:

I always had heard it is the other way around with the mosquitos liking it. Then again, old wive's tales often have a way of losing their factual basis.

Oh, and simply because it's yellow, that also increases the radioactivity. I don't recall why (will have to dig into Physics texts) but the color yellow will show more activity on a geiger than a similar object (i.e. plastic ball) of another color.
