30 Bananas a Day!

Just a weird question: Are there big amounts of people (countries, tribes, villages), that eat 15+ bananas a day?

I'd really like to know if there are whole villages etc. who have bananas as their staple. I've never travelled outside of Europe (I live in the Netherlands). I know there are loads of countries who have starches as their staple, but I'm wondering about the fruit staples. 

So anyone? Any ideas?

Anyone?

I understand that bananas are a dietary staple in Jamaica, and the infamous Jamaican olympian  and runner Yohan Blake claims to eat at least 16 bananas a day.

Peace, PK

You might find islands in the Carribean area where bananas and fruits are dietary staples.  I might not call them 100% raw vegan/fruitarian, but high raw.

Thanks you guys. This is really nice to read! I will look in to the given information.
