Bananas are radioactive. Bananas contain radioactive potassium-D, and are actually used as a concept known as the Banana Equivalent Dose (or BED) by scientists as a base measurement against which to measure other sources of radiation. Bananas are not the only food found to be radioactive, with Brazil nuts, kidney beans, sunflower seeds and potatoes also qualifying. Indeed, bananas and Brazil nuts are so high in radiation that they have been known to cause false alarms on a regular basis on radiation sensors intended to detect the possible smuggling of nuclear materials at ports in the United States.
