If you are someone who enjoys bananas, then you should pay attention the next time you decide to buy some. They are so delicious that rarely anyone can resist them, but there is one thing to keep in mind before purchasing these tropical-flavoured fruits. The ripe bananas produce a substance called Tumour Necrosis Factor, which has the ability to fight abnormal cells.
Bananas contain Tumor Necrosis Factor
As the banana ripens, it develops dark spots on its skin. The darker spots you have, the higher your quality for immunity. Hence the Japanese love bananas. According to a Japanese scientific research, ripe bananas contain TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor) which has anti-cancer properties.
This substance, according to their study, helps to increase the capacity of the immune system. The conclusion of the study was that the consumption of ripe bananas can prevent certain diseases related to lifestyle and carcinogenesis.
The degree of anti-cancer effect corresponds to the degree of maturity of the fruit, that is, the riper the banana, the better the anti-cancer quality.
