Why tomato is good for you

Good morning guys!  I am on a healthy journey to a successful life.  I have to keep my mind, body and soul right.  Eating healthy is now becoming a lifestyle for me.  Throughout my journey, I have made it my business to research the benefits of the food I eat.  This is what I found out about tomatoes.  
Tomatoes are good for you.  Why? Here is why:

Lycopene.

What is Lycopene? Let's find out.  Lycopene is an antioxidant which helps to mop up damaging free radicals in the body that can harm our cells. Wow, that makes me sound very smart. Moving on.

Lycopene may help  against:
  • prostate cancer
  • breast cancer
  • stomach cancer
  • age-related macular degeneration.
And it could boost the skins ability to protect itself against UV rays.
Some studies have suggested lycopene may play a role in reducing bad cholesterol.
Lycopene is even one of the main ingredients in new 'beauty pills'. A study carried out by the dermatology department at Charite University, in Berlin, discovered a link between lycopene based supplements and smoother, less-wrinkled skin.
Ripe, red tomatoes are likely to contain more lycopene than paler, watery ones. Eat the ripe, red ones.

There you have it, my beautiful readers, let's eat more tomatoes.  They will help us prevent prostate cancer, breast cancer, stomach cancer and give us smooth skin.  I don't like tomatoes, but I am going to closed my eyes and eat them, because they are good for my health.

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.
