    Years and years ago back when I was a slim and trim young fellow I loved to eat banana-splits and also banana-loaf cakes. Even today at my rather heavy weight ( my car seems to groan whenever I sit in it  lol ) I still like to buy some bananas now and then. However a problem has been brought forward in the news as there is some type of a fungus that has shown up on some of the banana trees and is starting to kill off these plants. Let us hope that a remedy is found for this problem as in many parts of the world bananas are an important part of people's diets.

    Scientists have pointed out for decades now that our reliance on one type of banana will bite us in the behind sooner or later, when a disease comes and wipes it out. But nobody listens until it's too late...
