Did you know that according to the latest Japanese scientific research dark patches on yellow skin of banana produces a substance called TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor)? This element has the ability to fight abnormal cells. The riper the banana is, the better anti-cancer quality it has! In fact, banana with these dark patches is 8x more effective in immunity enhancement qualities than a green skin fellow.

Bananas are also great source of magnesium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, fiber, iron and vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, K, niacin and Panthothenic acid. They contain almost no fat and are low in calories. Their taste makes them an excellent snack for children. When buying bananas, you don't have to get organic ones, because the thick skin keeps pesticides away from actual fruit, same as avocados or watermelon.

Fun fact: Americans eat more bananas than any other fruit. In fact, they eat more bananas than both oranges and apples combined. The highest per person consumption in the world belongs to Uganda, where its inhabitants eat on average around 500 pounds of bananas per person, per year.
