Medical Banana poisonous part

  1. Jun 27, 2015 #1
    I am not sure whether it's right place to ask it,but anyways.
    Actually I have heard that bottom most part of banana is poisonous.There is an image confirming this
    which I have attached here.I am really worried ,my mother said she used to eat this so called"poisonous part"It is just a myth.

    I haven't heard of this before and the description 'absolute poison' in that image implies there to be something present in a banana which is harmful in the extreme to the extent of being lethal.
    If that was the case I am sure that supermarkets and other retailers would be placing large red warning signs wherever bananas are sold,
    and news reports of banana fatalities and even banana suicide would be common.
