Bananas Could be Extinct in Five Years

Plant pathologist Ioannis Stergiopoulos has said that a disease compound made of three fungal diseases could wipe out the banana people most commonly eat in as little as five to 10 years. The interview, which was recently covered by News.com.au, gives a grim outlook for Cavendish bananas.

WHAT ARE BANANAS GOOD FOR: There are many reasons why bananas are one of the most popular foods in the world. They offer the perfect portion size, come in their own handy, natural protective wrap, and are extremely economical. Fresh and creamy, bananas mix well with other fruits and are a favorite lunchtime addition or for noshing on the go. But did you know that eating green bananas can be even better than waiting for them to turn yellow? Because of their high-resistant starch content, green bananas can be used to safely treat diarrhea in children and adults. Most people don't like the taste and texture of unripe banana, but when prepared properly and combined with other foods it can be quite tasty. Make sure to eat bananas while you still can!
