Volgens het blad New Scientist hebben wetenschappers laten weten dat zonder grootschalig ingrijpen er over tien jaar waarschijnlijk geen eetbare bananen meer zijn. Twee schimmelziekten, Panama en Zwarte Sigatoka, roeien de banaan zoals wij die kennen en eten uit.

 Quote

A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
