The Bananas




Fowarded by my sister this morning :

************************************


The fully ripe banana produces a substance called TNF which has the ability
to combat abnormal cells.

So don't be surprised very soon the shop will go out of stock for bananas.

As the banana ripens, it develops dark spots or patches on the skin. The
more dark patches it has, the higher will be its' immunity enhancement
quality .




Hence the Japanese love bananas for a good reason.

According to a Japanese scientific research, banana contains TNF which has
anti-cancer properties. The degree of anti-cancer effect corresponds to the
degree of ripeness of the fruit, ie the riper the banana, the better the
anti-cancer quality.



In an animal experiment carried out by a professor in Tokyo U comparing the
various health benefits of different fruits,using banana, grape, apple,
water melon, pineapple, pear and persimmon, it was found that banana gave
the best results.

It increased the number of white blood cells, enhanced the
immunity of the body and produced anti-cancer substance TNF.

The recommendation is to eat 1 to 2 banana a day to increase your body
immunity to diseases like cold, flu and others.

According to the Japanese professor, yellow skin bananas with dark spots on
it are 8 times more effective in enhancing the property of white blood
cells than the green skin version
