Today, we’re gonna talk about the harm of bananas. To whom they are contraindicated and what side effects these tropical fruits can cause. You’ll also learn why they’re worth washing and how to know that the banana was treated with poisonous chemicals.

Chemical treatment.

Remember, in 99% of cases, we buy industrial bananas. Which are grown on special farms, on a huge scale? And the main task of these farms is to grow bananas quickly and a lot.

In one growth cycle, bananas are subject to at least two chemical treatments.

They are primarily treated with fungicides. These are chemicals that protect bananas from fungal diseases and parasites. That’s all right, but fungicides are incredibly toxic to our body, which has been proven by numerous studies. So are the insecticides used to treat bananas to protect them from insects?

Artificial ripening.

Before exporting to other countries, bananas are pulled down yet green and not ripe. Which have not yet managed to accumulate vitamins and useful minerals produced by sunlight? After transportation, they are placed in a gas chamber filled with ethylene, where they are artificially matured. And on the way out, we get empty bananas that contain nothing useful.

Transportation with poisonous processing.

Are you familiar with this situation: you took a beautiful banana with bright skin without flaws, and after opening it, you found inside a ripe rotting content.

This is due to the fact that bananas are treated with phenols for long-term storage during long transportation. And this is the strongest carcinogen that causes cancer.

Luckily, it’s easy to rinse off the rind. But usually, 90% of people don’t wash bananas before eating them.

Contraindications.

Bananas strongly condense blood and are primarily contraindicated to people with high blood clotting and varicose veins.
