Tomatoes are tops for prostates
Men, I've been telling you for years to eat your tomatoes (especially the cooked variety) to support prostate health and ward off prostate cancer.
Now a new British study has confirmed what I've been saying all along.
According to researchers, it appears if you eat over 10 portions of tomatoes a week your prostate cancer risk plummets by an impressive 18 percent.
The research also confirmed that getting in your recommended five fruits and veggies a day can reduce your risk as well.
The study, published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention looked at the diets and lifestyles of 1,806 men between the ages of 50 and 69 with prostate cancer and compared them to 12,005 cancer-free guys.
Tomatoes are rich in the cancer-fighting antioxidant lycopene, which is likely why they have such a big impact on prostate-cancer risk. You can easily add more tomatoes into your diet by eating fresh tomatoes, tomato juices and tomatoes sauces.
