Scientist have discovered that full ripe banana with dark patches produces a substance called TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor). TNF has the ability to combat abnormal cells. In fact, the riper the banana the more TNF it produces, leading to more anti-cancer substance. “Yellow skin banana with dark spots on it is 8x more effective in enhancing the property of white blood cells than green skin version“. This is a lesson for all those who like bananas, and only eat the non-fully ripened ones thinking they are no longer good, or simply for those that stay away from bananas because they simply don’t like them or think they are too fatning. Bananas are a very healthy fruit and now we learn some are anti-cancerous.
However, be careful if you are diabetic, if a banana is over-ripe, it is not good for you because of the high sugar level in it. However a well riped banana is perfectly healthy and better than non-riped banana. Bananas are good to incorporate in your diet if you are diabetic; simply mention is not to eat OVER riped bananas.
