Whereas you can pick a banana from a tree and eat it, it will digest within 24 hours?


Human ancestors developed eating meat as a food source long before the cultivation of the modern banana, or cooking methods.
Species ancestral to humans such as those within the Australopithecus genus (from which Homo originated) ate widely varying diets including both meat and fruits, early Homo species shifted and became more meat inclined (likely due to climate changes and other dietary restricting changes), while still holding on to both sides of diet.
Modern Humans can easily consume raw meats without prior preparation; food poisoning comes from bacteria not digestive disagreement, most people flavour their meat to make it more appealing and better tasting, simple as that.

Also the banana you can take off a tree these days is likely one of the varieties that were selectively grown and produced to suit the human palette, rather that their practically inedible ancestors.
But from what I have read, 98% of an ape's diet is ruffage/fruit - 2% comes from insects. It is our closest ancestor, and they have almost an identical digestive system to ours.
