Science : Humans share 50% of their genetic code with bananas

Humans share 50% of their genetic code with bananas

Humans and bananas share about 40 to 60 percent of the same DNA. This doesn’t mean humans are bananas or vice versa, but it does mean there are similarities. Scientists compared all banana genes to all human genes, counted similar genes, and found that about 60 percent of our genes have a counterpart in the banana genome. Of that 60 percent, about 40 percent were identical when compared to the amino acid sequence of the human protein.

You share almost all of your DNA with all races, including black people.

If that’s true, Then how come we’ve never seen someone peel a banana to reveal a human baby inside? Answer me that, Charles Durwood!
