If you eat bananas late at night can it really smother you?

That's news to me as well. Bananas are one of the easiest foods to digest I can think of. Part of the "BRAT" diet almost anyone can eat when they are ill. (banana, rice,applesauce, tea)

No. I eat bananas sometimes late at night and I've never heard of that.

It can give you bad stomach cramps in the morning because of the acid it contains

I think it will only smother you if you try to snort it...actually Banana's help you sleep

I thought you went through a twelve step program for your banana snorting issue. Was I thinking of someone else?

Where'd you hear that? I never heard of food smothering you. Did you peel the banana. That helps.

Answering a waaay old question but people should know, it was a news cast in the last 5 years that reported an elderly lady dying from smothering on a banana in her sleep; she had not chewed the banana well, I'm guessing. Good advice: Chew your food well, whether a banana or anything else, late at night or at other times of the day. (:
