Eat tomatoes, prevent liver cancer

Tomato

A new study conducted at Tufts University in the US has found that eating tomatoes helps reduce the risk of liver cancer caused by high-fat diets. The following points summarise the findings:

  • Tomatoes are a rich source of lycopene
  • Lycopene is a strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer agent
  • Lycopene helps reduce liver inflammation, fatty liver disease and cancer development in liver
  • Both whole tomatoes and processed tomatoes in the forms of sauce, paste, ketch up or juice contain abundant amount of lycopene
  • Lycopene also reduces the risks of certain other cancers, such as prostate, lung, breast and colon cancer, as well as several other diseases, including cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes.
