EATING TOMATOES LOWERS CANCER
A UK research has suggested that eating tomatoes may lower the risk of prostate cancer.
This is according to a UK study which observed that men who consume more than 10 portions of tomatoes each week reduce their risk by about 20% .
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide, with 35,000 new cases and around 10,000 deaths in the UK every year.
Cancer experts recommend eating a balanced diet which is high in fruit and vegetables and low in red and processed meat, fat and salt.
They found men who consumed more than 10 portions of tomatoes each week – such as fresh tomatoes, tomato juice and baked beans – saw an 18% reduction in prostate cancer risk.
Eating the recommended five servings of fruit or vegetables or more a day was also found to decrease risk by 24%, compared with men who ate two-and-a-half servings or less.
