    The thing with the GMO Cavendish is that they are taking DNA from a wild Banana (can remember the name now but its one of those with huge seeds) that is inmune to the fungus, so no DNA from a fish or frog so yeah I'm OK with GMO Cavendish

    Some other half-interesting facts: ① Bananas are the 4th most-produced staple food, by weight, in the world-it's used in North Africa like other people use wheat, maize, or rice. The effect of the fungus might be greater on starving poor people than annoyed rich consumers. ② The banana, biologically, is a herb, not a fruit. Has HAI done an episode about why the tomato was reclassified as a vegetable by the federal US government?
