Why tomatos are good for you

Eating tomatoes more than two times a week can reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 21 to 43 percent according to Dr. Edward Giovannucci of the Harvard University School of Public Health.
Cooking tomatoes in oil encourages intestinal absorption and results in a two-to-threefold rise in plasma lycopene concentrations.
Men who eat two or more servings of tomato products average a 35 percent reduction in prostate cancer risk.
Tomato products are beneficial in aggressive cancers that have also spread to other parts of the body.
Lycopene helps women guard against cervical intra-epithelial neoplasia, (CIN), tumorous tissue growth in the cervix according to research from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Lycopene is a powerful inhibitor of the growth of breast, endometrium (inner lining of the uterus) and lung cancer cells.
Tomatoes are high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium and Potassium.
Foods rich in cooked tomatoes may boost your body’s ability to ward off skin damage from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays and stave off the effects of aging.
