Benifits Of Tomatoes

A single tomato can provide about 40% of the daily recommended minimum of vitamin C.

The scientific name of tomatoes is Solanum Lycopersicum, and they are believed to be native to Mexico.

Tomatoes contain a large amount of lycopene, which is a carotenoid and an antioxidant that is highly effective in scavenging cancer-causing free radicals. This benefit can even be obtained from heat-processed tomato products like ketchup. The lycopene in tomatoes defends against cancer and has been shown to be effective in fighting prostate cancer, according to a study led by Dr. Edward Giovannucci of the Harvard School of Public Health.Another study suggests that lycopene may help prevent the growth of prostate and breast cancer cells. The results of an animal study suggest that lycopene has the potential to prevent renal cell cancer.

The coumaric acid and chlorogenic acid in tomatoes fight against nitrosamines, which are the main carcinogens found in cigarettes. The presence of vitamin A in high quantities has been shown to reduce the effects of carcinogens.
