Nuclear Radiation: One banana, two banana.

Article





This is interesting.  The lesson here is to stay away from bananas!  Really, a nuclear plant or a flight might give you a lot of bananas, why add more by eating one?  :)

All the people fight a nuclear waste site because they don't like bananas.  If you have a granite counter-top in the house, that's equivalent to a few bananas, for sure!

Ironically, the fewer $$$ you paid for that countertops, the more bananas its probably worth!

At the cottage, I am surrounded by bananas, since there is low-grade uranium everywhere. Ironically, standing in a freshly plowed organic field has more banana-power than in a concrete city jungle.

Any parents of toddlers who play with banana-phones should consider teaching the safer hands-free version: Place the banana on the floor, and shout at it.

I think you can fool them with plastic bananas... Real ones are too dangerous.

I was just thinking that each banana should have a warning printed on it: "Warning: eating this banana will give you a radiation dose equivalent to eating one banana!" :)
