*Smoking: Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.
*Stress: Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance.

What this story didn't tell you is that the telemarketer probably bartered / blackmailed this guy before she called the cops. This guy probably is now signed up for 25 new magazines and a new long distance plan. Article here.
