Good stuff about the health benefits of banana, Khyati. However, I can assure you that the bananas contributed LEAST to your recovery from what you called "cervical scare".

Your recovery was largely due to the physiotherapy, and even though you didn't mention it, the analgesics your doctor might have prescribed or the OTC —over the counter — analgesics you took.

In the urge to take another angle on a topic like the health benefits of banana which has been discussed ad nauseam, we have to be careful not to mislead the readers by assigning to banana the properties it clearly does not possess.

Please don't get me wrong. I love bananas and I take one or two almost daily, not quite daily. Now a senior citizen, I can certainly attest to its benefits in the appropriate context.
