St. Petersburg, FL -- As you get ready to pack a lunch for the day, here's a cancer-fighting food to add to your diet. 

Mangoes are a sweet treat that are packed with antioxidants. These antioxidants can clear the body of free radicals. Free radicals are harmful molecules that can trigger some forms of cancer and heart disease. 

Researchers at Texas A&M University found part of the fruit may limit an inflammatory response in both cancerous and non-cancerous breast cells. Mangoes can be incorporated into salsa, salads -- even champagne!
