Who does not like to have fruits in their daily diet? After all fruits have the capability of keeping diseases like diabetes, Alzheimer, cancer and other heart diseases at bay. Now a day’s life is spinning at faster rate we have to accomplish the given task within a stipulated time frame with the result people work beyond their capacity. They are exposed to toxic fumes and pollution and remain under stress. The simple way to escape from these diseases is to take the assistance of fruits which provide various antioxidants which in turn prevent us from free radicals from attacking our body.

According to a new study carried out by Texas AgriLife Research food scientists, mango fruit was found to be preventive in blocking various colon and breast cancer cells in the lab. Before the onset of this revelation, little information was there about the health benefits from mango. The scientists examined five varieties of mangoes found in the U.S. viz., Kent, Francine, Ataulfo, Tommy/Atkins and Haden. Dr. Steve Talcott who conducted the study on cancer cells said, for fighting various diseases people recognize only antioxidants like blueberry, pomegranate, and acai, mango is not even considered in this list. That is the reason why the scientists checked the effect of mango in fighting cancer cells and found they actually stopped the growth of cancer in certain areas like breast and colon cell lines. This test of mango polyphenol extracts was carried in vitro on colon, lungs, leukemia, prostate cancers and breasts. Mango’s effect was seen in combating leukemia, prostate cancers and lung but its true efficacy was seen in fighting breast and colon cancers. Talcotts intend to do some small clinical trial on individuals with increased inflation in their intestines who have a higher risk for cancer, after seeing the results they can plan a larger trial, to see if there is any clinical relevance.

Other benefits of having mangoes, which contain low carbohydrate, are they combat acidity and poor digestion, relieve clogged pores of the skin, are rich in iron and anemic people are advised to have them regularly. Because of the richness in vitamin A, C and E they combat heart diseases effectively. According to FAO around 250 million people which include pregnant women and children suffer from the deficiency of vitamin A, this shortfall results in diseases like measles and dysentery in children. The WHO recommends combating measles with Vitamin A, while vitamin C in mango helps in absorbing iron. Mango aids beauty enhancement, regularly taking mango enhances the complexion fair and shining. To get quick relief from diarrhea, it is recommended to take 2 – 3 serving a day of its powder with water.

    I can’t believe that my most hated fruit can actually prevent breast and colon cancer. Don’t get me wrong, I still eat mangoes at least twice a month since I still consider it healthy like any fruits and vegetables are, but upon reading this article, I might change that to at least once every week. I really like keeping myself healthy since I do not like going to the hospital when I get sick. I’ve already spent a lot of my time being sick when I was a kid. I regretted not having fun back then, that’s why I keep a strict diet and exercise. I am not going to spend any more time in any hospital for just being sick.

    Oh this is great news for me! I consider myself a fruitarian that I can spend a whole day just eating fruits. Considering myself as an occasional barbecue lover which we know has a lot of carcinogenics that could contribute to a certain kind of cancer, it’s great to know that eating fruits could battle the carcinogens in it. Indeed, living a healthy lifestyle accompanied by proper diet and exercise can help us have a healthier disposition. As for mangoes, has anyone here tried Philippines’ mangoes? I have been there for vacation last year with my family, and wow without any exaggeration, they have the best mangoes that the earth could offer!

    My daughter is a picky eater, she tends to choose her food more than ever before. We are really concerned about the nutrients she will get from eating only fried foods such as hotdogs. I did some research and found out that mango contains lots of vitamins our body needs. This made me quite happy since my daughter loves mangoes very much. We will just add healthy supplements to my daughter’s meal to encourage her to eat other foods available in the table. The supplement improved her appetite little by little. She is now eating a much wider variety of food. I’m really happy how this blog explained why sometimes children choose food they want to eat. This is a very informative article.
