Lycopene In Cooked Tomatoes and Prostate

Consuming red and pink coloured fruits and veggies especially cooked tomatoes, guavas, watermelon and pink grapefruit lower risk of prostate cancer according to the American Institute for Cancer Research.

The study, which focused on research related to lycopene from food sources rather than from dietary supplements, found that men who consumed higher amounts of lycopene had an 11 percent reduced risk of prostate cancer compared to those who consumed the least; highest amounts of circulating blood lycopene was also linked to a 17 percent lower risk. There was a 1 percent decrease in prostate cancer risk for each additional 1 milligram of lycopene consumed per day. An average tomato has about 3 milligrams of lycopene.

Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men worldwide, after skin cancer.

Lycopene blocks the blood supply to tumours. So get a quality tomato soup or tomato sauce and make your prostate healthy and joyous today! :)
