Mangos Found To Be Effective Killer Of Breast And Colon Cancers

January 11, 2010: 06:31 AM EST
A new laboratory study by Texas researchers has found that mangos prevent and even stop certain colon and breast cancer cells. Noting that mangos are not high in antioxidants, compared with blueberries, acai and pomegranates, the researchers nevertheless tested mango polyphenol extracts on colon, breast, lung, leukemia and prostate cancers. Mangos showed some impact on the lung, leukemia and prostate cancers, but were most effective at killing breast and colon cancers, without harming normal cells. The researchers said they hope to conduct a small clinical trial among people with intestinal inflammation who are at greater risk of cancer.
