Netizens all over the globe love spreading news warning internet and social media users of some act of terrorism or Satanism. Like just the one recently posted of bananas allegedly injected with blood containing HIV and AIDS.
KAMI spotted this controversial news posted by one Facebook users warning others to share the post in order to save other.
- This post was about a banana with red color in it and was justified with photos showing a banana being injected and as a result, red coloration appeared in the fruit.
- There was an explanation in the post that bananas and other fruits containing red weird color were allegedly injected with blood containing HIV and AIDS.
- This post and the news itself was posted and shared in social media causing panic to others who believed in it given that banana is a very common fruit to eat all year round. This Kami story will give clarification to the alleged act of Satanism.
Photographs were used in order to claim that a banana was injected with HIV-infected human blood in order to spread the virus. The red marks or veins were seen running through the core and down the sides of the skin of the banana.
One of the sources of the alleged infected bananas explained the reasons behind the blood-like discoloration of the fruits. The defect was caused by the bacteria – Banana Xanthomonas Wilt (BXW) which could be transmitted to other plants by contaminated plant material, knives, soil or even through air. Infected adult plants manifest the presence of the bacteria through their fruit showing internal symptoms like the visible red-brown streaks within the flesh and the vascular bundles of the banana. This is often mistaken as blood, but it isn’t.
Additional info which proves that this news is FAKE is the reality that it is nearly impossible for the HIV virus to be transmitted via foodstuffs. The virus does not live long outside a host’s body and a person can’t get it from eating food handled by HIV-infected person. Furthermore, heat from cooking and stomach acid will destroy the virus which is possibly present in the food.
Set your information straight and share the FACTS from KAMI, rather than posting and spreading this false rumor.
