Sounds yummy: I trust you are not adding a lot of sugar. This has vitamins and minerals and the key is that you are eating this instead of the salty / sugary / greasy stuff most people overeat. There's no magic in the fruits and vegetables, but it's a great choice and a move toward a healthier lifestyle generally. ...Read more

Depends.: Good question. Maggots of a fly. Do you mean if you eat them? No. But they can cause myiasis (skin boils) if they land on you (or animals) and lay eggs in your skin. Big boils. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cordylobia_anthropophaga It is not a disease found in the US. However, Americans can get the same thing from the botfly.

Why would you take?: Even though it was mentioned by dr. Oz (who generally isn't very accurate on medical topics), it doesn't seem to decrease weight, fat breakdown, or energy expenditure in overweight people.

Think I am allergic because i had a bad reaction to iodine. What foods have iodine and does the mango have iodine?
Is it bad to eat a whole mango for a one off. Also is it bad to suck the mango pit/seed and is it bad to eat a tiny bit of the skin?
No. No. No.: People eat one mango at a time, the entire mango. Here in California, we buy them by the box, which is about 18-24 mangoes. Nibbling all the good stuff off the pit is what we do. A few people like a little bit of the skin for flavor; most people just toss the skin. As long as a person is not allergic to mango flesh, skin, or sap, it's fine to eat a mango. ...Read more

My bf suffering testiscular cyst, its like a big mango size.Is there any cure or somehow reduce the size?
Is there a diagnosis: Has he been formally tested and diagnosed with a cyst or is this what you and he feel that it is? He may need an ultrasound to know for sure what is causing the swelling but it could be a few things, such as fluid collections between the different tissues of the testicle and scrotum. Many of these things go away on their own, but if big enough may need medical attention. See a doctor for testing. ...Read more
I went into anaphylactic shock from kiwi and mango at age 18. What are the chances i will outgrow them? Other related foods should I be cautious with
See an allergist: This is not something to take a chance on since no one can predict when or if you may lose the allergy. See an allergist to get yourself tested if you must consume these fruits. A blood test call immunocap ige may also be helpful. In the meanwhile, be sure to get an Epinephrine kit in case of accidental exposure. ...Read more
Different things: There are different possibilities. It could be something you ate or a medication you are taking. That would include vitamins and supplements.
