If you've ever spent any time with me on a daily basis, you'll know I love bananas. I eat one a day. I know better than to eat green bananas though - Bob the ulcer does not like green bananas (and if I do eat one, my evening, like last night, is guaranteed to be ruined). I also can't eat yellow-green bananas. Thus I annoy my classmates with smelly, over ripe ones every day.
Funny then, while researching this I came across the following articles in Pubmed:
Apparently bananas are natural antacids (yay, Bob likes them as long as they're ripe.). Also FYI: ripe bananas relieve diarrhea, yet green bananas are natural laxatives. That's a crazy concept really.
