If everyone stops eating bananas, what happens to the people who work the 
plantations?  They probably start growing cocaine for a cash crop.  Simply 
boycotting bananas is not an answer.  It won't hurt the fruit companies, 
which are diversified corporations.  It may irritate the governments a 
little, but that won't be permanent.  The people that will get hurt are the 
little guys who lose their jobs.
