Patient discussion about peeling

Q. Does people eating peeled bananas can become vulnerable to fight, like barbarians. last month my dad was bitten by monkeys and as he explained the situation that these monkeys ran to eat the bananas he was having, which actually he brought to feed those monkeys. He saw that all of them ate the peeled out bananas and the couple of them ate the skin of banana, so my dad started giving them the skin of banana and the peeled bananas to the rest all, he don’t know, what rage happened among the monkeys soon that they started jumping on my dad and one of them bit him and the nearby guards helped my dad to rescue…..after the incident I was wondering does it make any difference between those monkeys for the love of peeled bananas – as my dad remembers that those 2 monkeys started the incidence…. Seems joking but yes…. I too want to know does the similar thing in human can make any difference….I mean does people eating peeled bananas can become vulnerable to fight, like barbarians….any chemical, nutritional, difference evident...Anyone….plz

A. But you asked a good question about the link of any chemical difference...yes … there are differences …..And is found with extra vitamins and other nutrients. According to a research done in India it is being shown that banana skin is good for heart ailments and the banana is found to make teeth whiter when daily rubbed. So I guess that this actually causes therapeutic effect in monkeys which the researchers have proved. The skin of all the fruits is proved to have vitamins and other nutritional contents in them.

Q. Ebola is serious I heard that Ebola is serious disease crapping out the inner lining of our intestines, the lining of our tongue peeling off, blood comming out of every hole in our body, including our nips. not too much fun. Could anyone tell me about the treatment for this. So this can educate me and other who read this.

A. Ebola is classified as a biosafety level 4 agent (EXTREME HAZARD-full precautions required, NO KNOWN vaccine/cure), as well as a Category A bioterrorism agent by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. and that's because it's highly violent and with no cure or vaccine.
