We did an episode a while back on what foods you can eat after a nuclear fallout. Consider this the sister episode to that. When I read a claim that all bananas contain radiation, I knew I had to find out more. Theorists, is your banana trying to kill you? Or is something bigger afoot? Grab a snack… but be careful what you choose.

  1. MatPat explains how fruit bananas 🍌 are radioactive ☢️.
    Peely after seeing the video: 🤨.

  2. You talked about how many bananas it would take to give you a lethal dose, but not how many it would take to give you cancer. How many bananas does it take to get cancer? Zero. Every banana after zero only increases your risk.

  3. Fun fact, if you eat 40,000 bananas in 10 minutes, you will die of radiation poisoning… Or you would if you were still alive to die of said radiation poisoning.

    Edit: this may be wrong, I don't remember where I heard this

  4. As a smart Man once Said: " If you eat 10.000 bananas in 10 minutes , you would die of radioactive posioning"

  5. to your thing about radon from granite, where I live, radon seeps from the ground and into basements, possibly to lethal amounts… how fun!

  6. Dont humans share like 70% of their DNA with bananas?

  7. I’m eating bananas 🍌 in plates made before 1970 while watching the video.
