3. Cancer Prevention
One of another amazing banana benefits is some types of cancer prevention. Research (done by American Institute for Cancer Research) shows that dietary fiber “convincingly” lowers the risk of colorectal cancer. In addition, vitamin C, “probably” lowers the risk of esophageal cancer. A banana contains about 17 percent of daily value of vitamin C. The studies might not be 100% convincing, but eating a banana every day would not hurt.
