Default The biology of the banana - a government report

Nothing unusual to people on this forum to read about the biology of the banana

http://www.health.gov.au/internet/ogtr/publishing.nsf/Content/banana-3/$FILE/biologybanana08.pdf

A link to an Australian government report. What made me laugh is that the report has come from the Departement of Health and Ageing.

I haven't got far enough into reading it to try and figure out why that department would be writing about banana biology

Looks like the sponsors of the report were concerned about GMO:
This document provides an overview of baseline biological information relevant to risk assessment of genetically modified forms of the species that may be released into the Australian environment.
