SAN DIEGO — Men who have elevated levels of prostate specific antigen (PSA) during prostate cancer screening often turn out not to have cancer, but a new set of markers in the blood may improve the ability of the test to distinguish men who have cancer from those who don't, a new study suggests. In the study, a blood test that looked for three markers in the blood, in addition to PSA, was much ...

The processes and cellular pathways that allow cells to move, stiffen, and react to physical stresses has been identified through new research. This knowledge, researchers hope, could reveal the causes of cancer and help develop treatments, including therapies for a variety of diseases. "In the cancer context, mechanical force is important because tumor cells will generate force as they are invading, pulling on other cells," said one researcher. "They are pulling on the cells they are attached to as they are trying to get away."

Cayenne pepper is known for its immune boosting potential: besides the anti-inflammatory effects of capsaicin, cayenne is also an excellent source of carotenoids, including beta carotene - a powerful antioxidant that can help prevent free radical damage. Its high levels of vitamin A (two teaspoons of cayenne pepper provide 47 percent of the daily value for vitamin A) support immune function as well.

This Friday, April 11th, feel free to eat enough mangoes to cause mayhem. We’ll be offering Ataulfo mangoes for 69¢ each, or $9 a case – buy more, save more!

Availability and limits may vary by region. Contact your store for details. While supplies last. Not available in our UK stores. Most of our stores do not provide rain checks for sales like this.

Our Ataulfo (aht-ah-uhl-foe) mangoes hail from Mexico. Sweet with a smooth, creamy flesh, these fruits are practically the ice cream of the stone fruit world. They make for a great “anytime” treat.

With a thin pit and few stringy fibers, they’re a breeze to work with in the kitchen once you learn how to cut them. Here are a few recipe ideas for Ataulfo mangoes.

Dress them up in (nearly) nothing. Where mangoes grow abundantly, people often season them simply with salt and pepper. We love cutting them into wedges and sprinkling with chili powder or adding a dollop of whipped topping.

Serve in salsa. Offer our rich Avocado Mango Salsa to company and you might have guests guessing at the secret ingredient. (Hint: it’s orange zest!) Or, top broiled fish with light and tangy Mango-Cucumber Salsa for a delicious main course.


Avocado Mango Salsa

Drink up. A yogurt-based mango lassi tastes like a “mango milkshake,” as chef Jamie Oliver describes it. But there’s no need to feel left out if you steer clear of dairy: we have a superb vegan version of the mango lassi.

A substitute for raw fish. Think about it: mangoes and fish share a similar dense, buttery texture, which explains why mango tastes so great in sushi. If you pair mango with its power twin (avocado – yeah!), you’ve got yourself a sushi roll filling that rocks. 

Try something new. One of the most intriguing mango recipes I’ve encountered this year is Shrimp and Mango Ceviche. Our Shrimp and Mango Samosa recipe runs a close second though.

What’s your favorite way to use mangoes? Please let us know in the comments section below. And remember, stock up on Ataulfo mangoes this Friday when they’ll be on sale for 69¢ each, or $9 a case.

May mango madness descend!
