Yes - in 10 years we may have no bananas<br><br><br><br>
Read about it here:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,3604,875612,00.html" target="_blank">http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/st...875612,00.html</a>

Interesting. Bananas are one of my favorite fruits. And there low glycemic! But there about 109 calories (118G) compared to an apple at 62 calories (110G) so I have been trying to avoid them.

Don't let them go the GM-way.<br><br><br><br>

Yes, I heard it on the news the other day. A bit frightening, isn't it? I eat bananas all the time - they are just so good for you, taste even better, and at least where I live they're real cheap too. They're excellent if your in need of a quick energy boost, full of B group vitamins and potassium. Man, I'd be lost without bananas!

I love bananas! I wouldn't buy GM ones though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
What would I put in my smoothies?? Peanut butter & banana sandwiches are yummy too!<br><br><br><br>
Why would they taste different in 10 years by the way? I didn't get that.<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

There seems to be a difference in taste between the races (spiecies)

I love bananas but I have a hard time digesting them. Someone told me that they contain a sugar similar to lactose but I don't know the details.

I get exacerbation of my neuropathic pain after eating bananas. I can eat small quantities mixed into a fruit salad -- like one banana cut up and mixed with lots of other cut up fresh fruit; but if I eat, say, a snack consisting of just 2 bananas, I feel ill.

I used to love bananas, but I ate so many of them that by the time I was 4 years old, I was sick of them. I've TRIED recently to force myself to eat and like them, but I can't even get through half a banana before I gag. I'd love to like them, but ARG!

When I get a sweet tooth I slice a nanna down the middle and sprinkle it with some cinnamon sugar. Pop it in the microwave for about 30 sec and you've go desert. Wonderful with crushed walnuts too.

I'm not to concerned. The report came from French scientists, so I take it with a grain of salt. These people made Jerry Lewis a national icon, so I don't trust their opinion on anything else.

That article didn't really sell to me the idea that bananas are going to be gone in 10 years. If fungicide is so important, then howcome it's so easy to find organic bananas that aren't terrible more expensive than their fungicidal counterparts?<br><br><br><br>
I did rather like the term "mutant wild bananas" however. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
ETA: I see that this has been bumped from very long ago. I want to add that bananas don't grow on trees, they grows on plants (that happen to be considered a type of herb, the largest on Earth.)

yes I know they're not properly considered trees, but what else would you call a plant that's 15 feet tall and about 15 inches in diameter at it's base?

Since this thread was created in 2003, I guess that means the countdown stands at eight years? Wonder why this has not been raised at all since the original round of news stories?
