Amazing Fresh Ripe Red Tomatoes on VineMen who consume more than 10 portions of tomatoes or tomato products per week have an 18 percent lower risk of developing prostate cancers, suggests a recent British study.

Researchers at the universities of Bristol, Cambridge and Oxford examined the lifestyle and diets of approximately 1,800 British men between the ages of 50 and 60 men with cancer and approximately 12,000 men who did not have cancer.

The cancer-fighting ingredient is believed to be lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that gives tomatoes and certain other fruits and vegetables their red color. Although the study’s findings are suggestive, they did not provide enough evidence to make a concrete recommendation.
