Worried About Fallout From Japan?

Stop eating bananas for a while.  Bananas are naturally radioactive (a potassium concentrator, and therefore a potassium-40 concentrator).  This article at Watts Up With That? points out that bananas are sufficiently radioactive to set off the nuclear weapons detectors at ports of entry--and likely more of a radiation risk to you than whatever drifts over from Japan.

  1. It does occur to me that "The Radioactive Bananas" would be a good name for a rock band.
