 How Tomatoes (LYCOPENE) Protects The Human Body
 A recent analysis of the health benefits of eating Tomatoes concluded that our bodies contain unstable molecules called FREE RADICALS which can disrupt healthy cells, and cause damage to cells, proteins and DNA. Free radicals are associated with human disease.
These FREE RADICALS can be neutralised by ANTIOXIDANTS. One of the most common antioxidant is vitamin C.
If we can eat 'antioxidant rich foods', we can help to fight against these harmful radicals.

Red is Best - Red Tomatoes Contain More Lycopene Than Green
Scientific tests showed that 'red' tomatoes have more Lycopene then 'green' ones.
Samples of the red and green extracts were added to a blue solution  containing harmful free radicals. The more free radical busting Lycopene there is, the clearer the liquid becomes. Green Tomatoes have absolute minimal, or no amounts of Lycopene.
Recent evidence has also showed that Lycopene can block inflammation, and block some factors influencing the growth of the prostate. Eating tomatoes high in Lycopene can prevent the blood supply from reaching the Tumour, slowing down and in some cases, stopping the cancer entirely.
