    The question, followed by the statement - "I am ONLY asking for good health" - is relevant in view of a HUGE MISCONCEPTION AND IGNORANCE, BORDERING ON FANATICISM... that is attached to the CAUSAL CONNECTION BETWEEN FOOD AND HEALTH. True... WE ARE WHAT WE EAT!

    We must recognize that FOOD AND ETHNICITY ARE ENTWINED AND INTEGRAL WITH GEOGRAPHICAL AND LOCALIZED ENVIRONMENT. An Eskimo can neither live on the Jackfruit that is available in almost all of South East Asian regions nor would he/ she even understand what that means. The Jackfruit season begins around March-April and continues right up to July-August. How many people on earth know that JACKFRUIT IS ONE OF THE MOST WONDERFUL FOOD MATERIAL? In fact, there is one "school" that advocates Jackfruit as answer to AIDS. The veracity is still not clinically proved, though.

    Now, coming to APPLE vs BANANA, this writer wishes to note that the very IDEA IS NOT SCIENTIFIC, on the basis of what has been said about Jackfruit and Eskimos. Banana is a Tropical fruit, and Apple is a Temperate Zone fruit. Universalizing either is fraught with danger in that each is alien to the other region. And, today, we have recognized that although genetic modifications of vegetation species create great scope for so-called productivity, it has been observed that the genetically modified strains ARE PRONE TO DISEASES UNLIKE THE ORIGINAL SPECIES WHICH HAVE GREAT RESISTANCE POWER. Inductively, we should be able to deduce that FOOD MADE OF SUCH MODIFIED SYSTEMS WOULD TRANSFER THAT TENDENCY TO HUMANS TOO, making humans prone to ATTACK BY DISEASES. This, in fact, could be the reason for NEW STRAINS OF VIRUSES etc that have sprung up over the last fifty years, creating deadly conditions.

    This writer comes from the southern state of Kerala in India, where there are dozens of varieties of Bananas/ Plantains; and the local population has sufficient knowledge and experience to use these different varieties in as many food preparations. The large variety called NENTHRAN is dried and pulverized (just before ripening), and a mixture is made that become THE MOST OPTIMUM BABY FOOD. There is one variety that is converted into an exquisite and tasty fruit salad called PANCHAMRITHM - an apt word that describes it as LIFE-GIVING-NECTAR. Yes indeed! Bananas are used in special "curries"; they are fried in GHEE (something the wetstern food system does not know about); they are fried in Coconut oil; they are dipped in SHARKKARA (the colloid that is used in various parts of India - called GURH - which is sugar before it is converted into the crystal form, considered superior to sugar in food value) and fried in coconut oil; some are used in mashed curries, along with additions of coconut gratings and some spice/ condiment ingredients; the Nenthran variety is a Breakfast food when it is boiled whole... the list would go on...but this being not a recpe competion, the writer wishes to stop at this level!!!

    What was presented above is NOT TO SAY THAT BANANA IS SUPERIOR OR OTHERWISE, BUT TO POINT OUT THAT WHETHER IT BE BANANA OR APPLE, THE REAL FOOD VALUE IS FOR THE LOCAL ETHNIC COMMUNITY ALTHOUGH AS EXOTIC FOOD/ FRUITS, EACH WOULD BE ACCEPTED IN THE OTHER REGIONS. And that is the way it should be. For, let us not try to argue whether Mongolians or Negroes are superior. Both are humans - homo sapiens!!!

    Why have 99% of the females answered 'banana' I seriously wonder! An apple a day keeps the doctor they say...maybe they want him to stay and play. Me! I'll take an apple any day.
