Al-Marsad newspaper: The two scientists from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Jian Saotian and Liao Jie, revealed in an article that bananas pose a certain, albeit slight, danger to health, due to the radioactive element it contains.
The researchers pointed out that these fruits contain, in addition to the usual harmless potassium, also potassium-40, a source of ionizing radiation that negatively affects health. According to “Novosti” agency
However, the amount of this substance in bananas is considered small. The two scientists said: “The radiation dose received from eating one banana is about 0.0778 microsieverts. This quantity is very small. In comparison, a CT scan of the chest is equivalent to 70,000 bananas.
