Peanut butter safety: Peanut butter in moderation is not harmful unless you are allergic/sensitive to it, although there has been concern over the presence of aflatoxin. Interesting alternatives to peanut are almond and hazelnut butters (would provide more of a variety of tastes and textures, and decrease the total amount of peanut in your system). "Natural' varieties have less sugar. These butters are high calorie ...Read more

Female 76 since having stroke 1 yr ago I take clopidogrel and Ramipril 5mg I eat 3 bananas a day As Ramipril is Ace inhibiter for treatment of Blood Pressure should I avoid foods high in pottasium including bananas or eat these types in moderation?

Keep it simple: If your BP is well controlled with an ACE inhibitor, you do not need to worry about your Potassium (K)level. It is only diuretics that lower the Potassium. Even under that circumstance, you do not need to eat 3 bananas a day. One per day is more than enough. If you have concerns about your K level, get a blood test to measure your K level once yearly. ...Read more

Gas: These are not classic symptoms of a viral gastrointestinal tract infection, but could be an aftermath of one with predominant gaseous discomfort caused by either forming of excessive gas or sluggish passing of normal amounts of gas. Bananas are roughage and contribute to gas formation. Drinking hot (not boiling) water breaks down gas. Taking simethicone after meals prevents gas buildup.? See doc ...Read more

What could cause potassium deficiency. I eat healthy food but level is 3.0. I have to eat 6 bananas a day to get it to 3.6. Any kidney/health problems?

My Pd said to start giving food to my 5 month old baby like a banana...but she is refusing to take, is it because its something new?

Yes: I would question why so soon. In previous years when homemade formula from cow milk was routine, early feeding was necessary to improve nutrition. Now we understand breast or formula alone is fine & allows baby to develop motor skills that improve their transition to solids. I like to start @ 6m & making your own is a great way to avoid some of the additives & preservatives in commercial products. ...Read more
