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.
