Most of us are taught to keep well clear of anything radioactive unless we have no choice but to expose ourselves to it. It’s usually something that we really do try to avoid, but in some cases, such as fractures, we have no choice but to accept the exposure. But did you know that you have more than likely willingly put a radioactive substance into your mouth? Not only into your mouth, but also willingly swallowed it while enjoying the taste? And to really mess with your mind, apparently it’s good for you. So exactly what are we talking about? Well, believe it or not, bananas are radioactive.
Before you run off to your nearest supplier of personal radiation protection products so you can make a safe visit to your friendly local fruit grocer to warn them of the hazard they have been peddling to the unsuspecting public, just relax a little. While bananas are radioactive, they really aren’t that dangerous, and you are more likely to suffer this kind of serious radiation exposure than anything that a banana, or a million of them can throw at you.
