[Instant News/Comprehensive Report]Bananas are one of the common fruits in Taiwan. Many people are accustomed to buying a bunch of green bananas that are not fully ripe and then eating them after they turn yellow. Contains a large amount of resistant starch, which helps prevent a hereditary cancer.

Patients who took resistant starch for a long time and continued to follow up found that resistant starch can reduce a series of cancers by more than 60%, including esophageal cancer, gastric cancer, biliary tract cancer, pancreatic cancer and duodenal cancer. The dose is equivalent to eating an unripe banana a day, and up to 80 percent of the resistant starch in unripe bananas resists breaking down and reaches the gut, where it can change the types of bacteria that live there.”
In addition to green bananas, resistant starch is also found in peas, beans, oats, and other starchy foods.
Resistant starch is a carbohydrate that, unlike most carbohydrates, is not digested in the small intestine. Instead, it ferments in the large intestine, nourishing healthy gut bacteria.
The research team believes that resistant starch can reduce the development of cancer by reducing the amount of bile acids in the gut known to damage DNA and ultimately cause cancer. However, further research is needed to verify this.
