The whole banana thing, I don’t get why we only grow cavendish for the masses. Why can’t they use this time to work 3 or 4 different varieties into the mainstream? Why after the 50s did we all go to cavendish.

GMO is sometimes required to even get the thing people want. Without GMO some vegetables and fruits don't even look like we're used to seeing them. Besides, if GMO was really unhealthy, they would not be allowed. For example, fake drugs like aspirin and tylenol is sought out and destroyed because that kills you. But GMO's don't.

Well, a real receipe. when the bananas seems just too ripe to be eaten as it. I cook flamed bananas : a little butter in a stove, make the bananas caramelize (without the peel). When cook enough, you can add a little of strong alcohol (Rum, Cointreau, etc... whatever you like). then ignite the alcohol in the stove. serve warm... that's really tasty. and not fake. There's an alternative, in oven, but there you cook the banana cut in its length with its peel, and don't flame them in the oven.

People unjustly hate GMO. Every bit of vegetables and fruits we have is already a GMO. There's a big difference between 'natural GMO' like crossbreeding and splicing, and 'unnatural GMO' with chemicals and pesticides being spliced into the plants.

As a kid , we used to do the chocolate banana thing all the time! Not in the microwave like that, though. We'd put a very sweet kind of children's chocolates in (koetjesrepen) and wrap the banana in tinfoil before sticking it in the oven. The endresult was quite different.

The vast majority of people who have problems with GMOs don’t actually understand what GMOs are. All of the crops humans consume are genetically modified. The real difference is how they were made: in a laboratory or on a farm. As you pointed put wild bananas are radically different to domesticated bananas and the same holds true for virtually every other crop humans raise.

Instead of having a banana in your purse to protect from the sun, why not have sunblock in your purse. And people wont look at you like you've lost your mind.

I personally dont have much of an issue with GMOs as we are going to have 2 rely on them more and more as the population grows and as climate change issues continue to rise. I also think you cant lump all GMOs into the same category. Like cross breeding 2 kinds of oranges or something isnt exactly the same as manipulating a plants DNA and adding genes from a completely different type of food like when they added a brazil nut gene into soy beans or watever, I 4got the exact plants involved. Either way though they need more long term studies b4 anything can be said for certain.

Thank you 4 exposing these frauds! I just dont understand how people make these fake hacks that can really be harmful and just dont care that they might be really hurting people! Like, why!? For some stupid views!? Humans really disgust me a lot of the time. Also I'm 99% sure bananas are a fruit, not a veggie, but no big deal. Im glad 2 know all these hack videos arent real though. I used to try them sometimes and be so frustrated that my attempts never worked! It never occurred to me that anyone would make videos like that and just blatantly LIE, purposely making hacks they know are BS! I'm lucky I never tried anything dangerous!

GMO phobias, why? Everything we eat has at one time or another over thousands of years been modified. Maze (corn), apples, peppers (you can't get to a ghost pepper without modification), and there are thousands of other examples.

In the US some of us put chocolate, marshmallows, and red hots inside a banana, wrap it in foil, and heat it in the coals of a campfire when camping. It’s a similar tradition to s’mores in youth camping or at least it was decades ago when I was a kid. I don’t recall thinking it smelled bad. I do recall the taste and liked it but liked s’mores better. We called it a banana boat long before I ever heard of suntan oil of the same name.

The work this woman is doing is colossal (in the best possibly imagined sense): she not only does killer research (kudos!) and comes up with down-to-earth "classes" in her videos; she is confronting the "farms" along with whoever and whatever may be behind them. She is like a lone hero trying her best for at least a few (ten-? hundred-?) thousands to see what YT and other platforms have become. All this without calling revolution or screaming death to capitalism. BRAVA!

There are cuisines where people do & have been eating banana peels along with the banana. But we don't eat it raw (we cook it with other ingredients) & we don't eat the ripe ones peel. Just thought it's an interesting fact . They do have nutritional value. It's just a cultural thing. I guess it could be weird for others

*People are afraid of what they don't understand.* Only those that don't have chemical knowledge are afraid of all "chemicals", even though we are literally made of them, when they really mean carcinogens. People that don't know how genetic modification works either, and will avoid GMO foods because they think it's inherently bad, but don't know why foods are being modified in the first place (like avoiding disease in the plants) or how many genetically modified foods they're actually eating on a weekly basis. Knowledge is the only way to defeat ignorance induced fear.

I would be more then fine eating the genetically modified banana. Especially if one was bread to have the sugars ripen into pretty much any sugar other then fructose. I can't have more fructose so I have to eat fairly green bananas or really small portions of them.

The banana with chocolate is actually called a Banana Boat. We made them in Girl Scouts/Girl Guides. When you cut the wedge, leave the peel attached. Add in chocolate, marshmallows, or whatever you like. Put the peel back in place, wrap it in aluminum foil, and put it at the edge of a campfire (or in a microwave) for a few minutes to let it all get melty and gooey.

I have no issue with GMOs. I think a lot of the fear and apprehension around them comes from misinformation. If someone you trusted told you that GMO meant someone was taking frog DNA and implanting it into human embryos, you'd probably be upset, too. The best way to combat misinformation is with research, trust and patience. Once someone has been indoctrinated to believe that vaccines cause autism and hormonal birth control is turning the frogs gay, it takes a lot to undue that damage.

14:10-ish: We used to make baked bananas a little like that at guide camp on the campfire (and we were told if you want to do it at home, bake them in the oven (about 10 mins). Only difference, we peeled the banana, did just one slit down it and pressed in chocolate buttons (and occasionally sprinkles), then wrapped it tight in tinfoil to bake. In all honesty, when I've been short on money, or feeling very nostalgic, I've made it since, but it's not the world's greatest dessert (a baked apple is way better).

In principle I have no problem with GMO food. Earlier methods to increase rate of mutation (used since the 1950s) use radiation to induce random mutations and then kept mutated varieties that had benefits. This is not labeled as GMO I think (citation needed). So, I personally prefer this more specific introduction of the specific gene into the plant. My only problem with GMO is when they introduce a gene to make it resistant to a specific pesticide so farmers can heavily spray them, or modify a plant such that it can't grow without fertilizers from a company. It is the pesticide and the ability of farmers to afford seeds/fertilizers I worry about, not the modified plant.
