Did you know that bananas are radioactive? Don’t panic this doesn’t mean your health is at risk and you should stop eating bananas immediately! Bananas contain high levels of potassium and it’s the K-40 potassium atoms which are the radioactive kind, but the dosage is very mild and humans are actually more radioactive than a banana anyway as we too have harmless radioactive potassium in our bodies. We need to maintain good potassium levels in our bodies to keep them functioning well. There really is nothing to worry about. You would have to eat 10,000,000 bananas in one sitting to die from the radiation effects and that’s hardly likely now is it!
