Eggs and Bananas are preferred by many in their diet plans but a post is being shared on Facebook by many users claiming that if anybody eats egg and banana at the same then it becomes poisonous. Let’s try to analyze the claim made in the post.
Claim: Eating eggs and banana at the same time will kill a man in five minutes.
Fact: The mixture of egg and banana will not lead to poisoning. In many dishes like Banana egg pancakes and Banana scrambled eggs, eggs and banana are mixed to make the dish. Also, the image used in the post has been used previously for other posts related to the Iftar party. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.
When the image in the post is run through Google Reverse Image search, the actual details of the photo were not found but it can be observed that the same photo is also used at various instances in the posts related to Iftar party. When searched for the claim made in the post on Google, it was found that similar posts were in circulation from the last two years. In the search results, a doctor’s response to a query on combining egg and banana in the diet plan can be found. The doctor confirms that there is no truth in the claim that eating eggs and banana will cause harm. Also, when this message was viral two years back, many fact-checkers across the globe, like Africa Check and Snopes, have written fact-check articles on this issue. Many diet plans and recipes also involve eating egg and banana together. So, there is no truth in the claim that a man will die of poisoning in five minutes if eggs and banana are eaten together.
Finally, eating eggs and banana together will not lead to poisoning. It’s a hoax.
