Exclamation Bananas soon to be extinct

Eat all the bananas you can now because soon, there won’t be any left. And it won’t be because you ate them all. It’ll be because they’ve gone … extinct.

I don't believe it for a moment , these people have to find some story everyday for their site, so make-up/exaggerate.

They grow like weeds here, sell for 15p/kg... I'm making a drying machine for second quality bananas , which no one want's to buy.

Organic 5 bananas sell for £1.39 (Tesco), £1.50 (Morrisons), £1.95 (Waitrose). Waitrose have bumped their banana for 40p recently. Massive increase.

Yeah, I believe they will be extinct. They have no seeds.

Don't believe anything you read on Yahoo or any other mainstream media and not a word the governments say. Its there job to make you worry about EVERYTHING while they're taking you up the kyber.

I bet this is a spoof story to push banana sales this winter.

Good thiking...put all eggs into the same basket.

Quote:
So why haven’t we been able to do anything to stop the spread? Mostly because today’s bananas have been cultivated as a monoculture — all bananas are genetically identical because they’ve been grown as a seedless variety, which means that when one gets sick, they all get sick. Worse yet, the virus, which kills essentially by dehydrating the plant’s root system, can stay in the soil for 30 years.

http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...&ct=clnk&gl=uk
Quote:
Monoculture
A major problem associated with growing any crop in a monoculture is that once the land has been devoted to agriculture for a single species, soil fertility diminishes greatly. In the case of bananas, the former rainforest soil in which they are originally planted is particularly rich in nutrients. Deforestation, however, has resulted in the loss of a great amount of productive land, due to the fact that once protective forest cover is depleted, overall soil quality greatly declines.4

Banana producers are forced to continually expand their fields to make up for the diminished production per hectare, and the cycle of destruction begins again. Monoculture plantations pose another problem in the sense that they keep the plants from developing immunity to many devastating diseases that occur in nature. Within the past few decades, certain viruses, pests, and fungi, have spread in epidemic proportions, and have begun to attack the world’s top selling commercial breed-the Cavendish.5 This susceptibility has, in turn, resulted in a crop heavily dependent on agrochemicals for its survival, and a widespread strategy for banana farmers- kill all invasive and threatening species with toxic pesticides. . . lots of them.


Pesticides
On many banana plantations, fungicides and insecticides are applied as many as forty times a year, amounting to a total use of nearly 44 kilograms per hectare.6 Not only do these chemicals cause cancer and mutations in humans, making them extremely harmful to the workers on plantations, but they are also devastating to the surrounding environment. After seeping into the water table, the toxic substances find their way into local aquatic systems, making the water an unsuitable habitat for many types of wildlife.

Sediments from overused land and agrochemical runoff are contributing to coral reef deterioration off the coasts of Costa Rica. Tortoises and manatees are facing extinction partly due to the fact that pesticide runoff kills the algae on which they feed.7 The combination of chemical usage, deforestation, and mono-crop plantations has led to soil so depleted of nutrients and saturated with agrochemicals that it is impossible for any type of vegetation to survive in it. If some solution is not found, banana plantations will continue to contribute greatly to degradation of fertile land and loss of biodiversity.

Guess we'll be eating shite like this then....Article from last year...

A vitamin-enhanced ‘super-banana’ developed by scientists is to be tested on humans. The trials are to take place in the US over a six-week period. Researchers aim to start growing the fruit in Uganda by 2020.

Aha!!! It makes sense then to remove the real banana, and provide the science-satanic GMO shite ones. I didn't know about this hister, thanks for this!!

Same here load of nonsense fear mongering, havent read it but the surplus of bannanas is ridiculous in south east asia, funny really appreciated a couple today for breakfast, so sweet and juicy and natural unlike the dry shit they sell in tescos and the like.

Golden Rice part II.

Quote:
“Good science can make a massive difference here by enriching staple crops such as Ugandan bananas with pro-vitamin A and providing poor and subsistence-farming populations with nutritionally rewarding food,” Dale said.
From Hister's link above!

http://www.foodrenegade.com/gmo-gold...nacea-or-hoax/

Quote:
… about 8 million children worldwide died from vitamin A deficiency. Are anti-GM advocates not partly responsible? …. Two recent studies in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition show that just 50 grams (roughly two ounces) of golden rice can provide 60 percent of the recommended daily intake of vitamin A. They show that golden rice is even better than spinach in providing vitamin A to children.
Quote:
Golden Rice: The Truth

What the spin doctors won’t tell you is this: Golden Rice does not have elevated levels of vitamin A (retinol) in it. Rather, it contains high levels of a vitamin A precursor known as beta-carotene.
Satanic-science strikes again.

We should get our own plants and grow our own.
