Bananas are one of the most highly consumed fresh fruit in the world because of their sweet taste, filling nature, easy-to-eat construction, and nutrient-richness. The fruit contains a variety of different vitamins and minerals including fiber, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, folic acid, antioxidants, and more.

One study says no more than 18 ounces a week, and if you manage even less, all the better.

Five people remained unaccounted for following a fiery crash involving a big rig and an Amtrak train in the Nevada desert, but investigators say they’ve yet to find any more bodies in the wreck that left six dead. The driver of the truck, a conductor and four others on the train were killed when the semi-trailer truck plowed into the California Zephyr at a highway crossing about 70 miles east of Reno. The big rig, the lead in a three-truck convoy, skidded about 320 feet before smashing through the crossing...
