Bananas Facing Extinction Risk from Tropical Disease

Bananas Facing Extinction Risk from Tropical Disease:  Scientists are racing to save the banana from a tropical fungus known as the “Panama Disease,” that is threatening banana crops throughout the world.  

Now I’m no biologist, but I would never have dreamed that it would be a fungus that would wipe out the world’s banana crops.  I would have assumed it would be something more obvious - like “yellow fever.”  Meanwhile, religious leaders are asking people to say a prayer for the bananas this sundae.    

And forget all the nutritional concerns, think about what’s gonna happen to the world’s banana republics - if they can no longer get their hands on any bananas?  Let’s get real folks, what puppet dictator is gonna want to turn his country into a mango and pineapple republic?  I mean - why bother?  It wouldn’t have any appeal.
