    Hi everyone,

    My boyfriend told me yesterday that apparently if you eat 10 banana's in one day, you will die. :eek:

    After I had picked myself up off the floor, from laughing so much, I decided to look it up on the internet.

    It is apparently a much asked question, but from what I scrolled through last night, and this morning, no one actually says whether it is true or not.

    I, personally, think its a load of codswollop, but interested to see what other people think.....??

    It is true that you can get sick and even die from a potassium overdose. It is also true that bananas (and avacados) are very high in potassium. However, you would have to eat FAR more than 10 bananas to become severely ill from it.

    So, your boyfriend is both righ and wrong, in the same heartbeat ;)
