TOMATO

A TOMATO is red and usually has four chambers,just likeour heart. Tomatoes are also a great source of lycopene, a plant chemical that reduces the risk of heart disease and several cancers. The Women’s Health Study – an American research programmed which tracks the health of 40,000 women – found women with the highest blood levels of lycopene had 30 per centess heart disease than women who had very little

lycopene. Lab experiments have also shown that lycopene helps counter the effect of unhealthy LDL cholesterol. One Canadian study, published in the journal Experimental Biology and Medicine, said there was convincing evidence that lycopene prevented coronary heart disease.
