Radiating Bananas

Hi. Welcome. It's a lovely May morning here in Robin Hood Land.

I haven't been here for a while - was visiting number 2 son and family in Scotland.  More about that in a later post. What I want to share today is the surprising news that bananas emit radiation! It's true! The information was imparted to me this morning be a radiologist as she manipulated my arthritic left knee and took various images. I had expressed concern at the number of x-rays that I have submitted to over the years and her riposte was that we get a higher does from a long-haul flight (I flew 14 hours to  Singapore in November!) and that bananas emit radiation. I eat at least one banana a day, sometimes two. I looked for more information.  The good news is that we would need to eat lots of bananas to have an adverse effect.
