    collecting a gamma spectrum from bananas, but did see plenty of K40 in the wood from which certain waste boxes were constructed during my time as a nondestructive assay guy. I did try to get a spectrum from sea salt, but didn't have enough of it to rise above the background. I think our pre-WWII steel shielded environmental counting facility could have made something from those but never got around to asking about it.

    Anyway, this little tale of yours gives a new meaning to the phrase "going bananas". lol.

    Moderation in most things.
