When I used to be a child, I have always think tomato as a vegetable and not a fruit. We used to eat with bread as a traditional family habit. But, most of the time, my dear mom used to cook it for entire family. I remember her preparing delicious Greek salad (we have another name for it "local mixed salad" as a side dish.
This delicious fruit is rich in healthy nutrients that can boost our immune system and help us keep healthy.
Specifically for the prostate, it contains Leucopene, a natural pigment (carotenoid).
Leucopene can be broken up in various metabolites inside our body with different, beneficial effects including anti-oxidative properties.
They can also interfere in the metabolic processes to prevent cancer onset.
Once again, tomatoes and/or leucopene cannot do miracles. They can reduce your chances to get cancer. Other diet and lifestyle changes should be implemented for a definite success.
