A Tomato a Day Keeps the Doctor Away
Posted by Staff
The Daily Beast:

A new study shows one tomato (in pill form!) each day could keep heart disease and cancer at bay.

Apples are so last year: it’s now a tomato that will keep the doctor away—and in pill form, too. A study undertaken by scientists in the UK found that using the newly developed tomato pill improved the functioning of blood vessels, reinforcing the long-held theory that a Mediterranean-style diet is good for your health.

The capsule contains natural anti-oxidant lycopene, which is 10 times more potent than vitamin E and also responsible for giving tomatoes their red hue. Lycopene has long been thought of as a staunch protector against illnesses including tumors, heart disease, and cancer, and has now been proven—among the study’s 76 participants, at least—to strengthen blood vessels in the body.
