( — October 23, 2013) Los Angeles, California — Except for skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women. About 1 in 8 (12%) women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime.


An increasing number of people are searching for healthy alternatives and natural nutritional approaches to preventing and treating cancer, so shore up your health and support the cause with the delicious mango treats at Café MangoSix, a global brand that recently opened their US flagship store on 3rd Street in the hippest stretch of West Hollywood, Los Angeles.


What has a mango treat to do with breast cancer? Laboratory experiments at Texas A&M University’s AgriLife Research Center showed that mango fruit prevented or stopped cancer growth in certain breast and colon cells.
