Can bananas prevent HIV?

Apr 22, 2011

I was reading an article about Bananas supposedly being able to prevent HIV infection better than the 2 most current HIV drugs. This article seems completely bogus, but I wanted to ask an expert opinion before completely disregarding it.

I've provided the link, so you can read over the article if you'd like to.

I look forward to your response.

Response from Dr. Frascino


While I don't believe bananas work better than currently available antiretroviral drugs, the banana connection is not completely bogus. See archives link below.
