About this blog right here. Uh huh...

Some people call my luv of mangoes 'a fetish'. Meh. I say it's gone way beyond that! This blog's my homage to the succulent fruit - memoirs, poetry, random thoughts, pics & anything mango-related I can get my tongue on.

A Mango a day Keeps Diabetes Away...

mango, diabetes

Well it might in the future according to this science article.

Yep, as well as protecting against high cholesterol.

Apparently, there are compounds unique to tropical fruit like mangoes and papaya that basically 'act on the same pathways that diabetes and cholesterol drugs target'.

Wow! Now that's slapped a wide biggadocious smile on my face.

Hi Dirt!

Hey, long time - how are you? I have to say I'm not a real fan of meme's, but I will take a look, but please forgive me if I don't do it.

Haven't been to your blog for a while. Must pass by sometime. Oh, and I added your link to my Mango Tongue blog (mango-tongue.blogspot.com) - been meaning to do that for a while.

You take care, thanks for passing through, and have a glorious week.

DID YOU KNOW?

...that in Hinduism, the mango tree is considered to be sacred because Prajapati, the Lord of Creatures, was changed into a mango tree.
