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.

EGGS – Some information

So I’m not a big fan of breakfast in the morning but it’s well known as the most important meal of the day. Egg is about the only thing i can eat in the mornings. I wanted some information about the white vs the yolk.

Here is what i found about eggs from
Eggs are one of the most nutrient-dense foods money can buy. And they’re cheap.
Eating eggs provides you with a wide range of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin D (needed for healthy bones and teeth), choline (essential for normal development of the brain and memory), folate (important if you are pregnant or intending to get pregnant), calcium (for healthy bones and teeth), iron and selenium.
Eggs contain the best quality protein including all eight essential amino acids. Two eggs contain 28% of an adult woman’s guideline daily amount of protein.
They are not a cholesterol risk. All major UK heart and health organisations have lifted limits on recommended egg consumption, as it’s now known that the dietary cholesterol in eggs does not have a signifcant effect on blood cholesterol.
A medium egg contains fewer than 80 calories.
Studies suggest that eating eggs can help cut calorie intake and prevent snacking by keeping hunger pangs at bay.
UK and US studies show that people who ate an egg-based breakfast felt fuller, consumed fewer calories and lost more weight than people eating cereal and bread/pastry-based breakfasts.
