BANANAS MAY BE THE KEY TO STOPPING AIDS SAY SCIENTISTS

Bananas may hold the key to powerful new treatments that protect against the Aids virus.  In laboratory tests, scientists found that a banana ingredient called BanLec was as potent as two existing anti-HIV drugs.
Researchers in the U.S. found that the lectin found in bananas can inhibit HIV infection by blocking the virus's entry into the body. BanLec acts on the protein 'envelope' that encloses HIV's genetic material.

Or alternatively, GAY MEN, if you feel the urge for sex with another man who may be gay, STICK A BANANA UP YOUR ARSE instead and there will be no chance of you getting AIDS!

Lorenzo, is he eating them or sticking them up his big, fat arse to cut out the middle-man?

I can't see this working somehow. Africa's awash with AIDS - AND bananas.

Anonymous, Yes but there, they have to eat them because they're starving and anyway Bananas come from the Carribean!

Bananas are grown all around the world and I've seen plantations in Australia, Africa and the Carribean.
They may die out soon though due to a disease spreading arond the world..

" The crops of bananas, a staple product of Africa, are threatened by two diseases that are infecting and killing banana plants. One of them - the banana bunchy top disease is non-curable and necessitates burning down entire plantations to get rid of. The disease prevents the banana plant from bearing any fruit. Another disease – banana bacterial wilt makes bananas inedible. Farmers are advised to use pesticides or resistant varieties of banana plants to fight off the diseases.

Banana crops in twelve African countries are affected by the disease, including Kenya, Uganda, Gabon, Angola, Tanzania and Malawi. Should the problem go unimpeded, the food supply of 30 million people could be in jeopardy. Bananas are a rich source of nutrients and a key nutritional element in the diets of local people. "

Bananaman, thank you for your very well thought out and informative comment. Tell me though, this wilt, if it makes the bananas inedible then they would be of a fabulous variety for sticking up gays' arses. Are they smallish and straight, or do they have a large bend as these might rupture the anus.

I'm not sure of the suitability of the wilty bananas for gay fun but I've heard that the ones with the bunchy top disease are perfect. There's no fruit but you just stuff the whole tree up there I think.

Boffins, that could leave you barking! I wonder if Mandy's had that particular treatment.
